Open angle glaucoma, affects at least 1.7% of the population over 40 years of age in industrial countries [1]. In this disease an increasing loss of ganglion cell fibers results in a progressive optic atrophy with an increased cup/disc ratio and an irreversible visual field loss [2]. In an attempt to detect early glaucomatous dysfunction, the mfERG has been studied as a possible diagnostic tool for the past decade. In experimental glaucoma, nerve fiber cell damage induced in the primate results… CONTINUE READING
