Background:  This study evaluated the visual contribution to postural steadiness in primary open angle glaucoma (POAG), in correlation with the mean deviation (MD) measured through conventional perimetry, and with the Advanced Glaucoma Intervention Study (AGIS) score, which quantifies the extent of losses in the visual field. 
Glaucoma Balance Control in Glaucoma
TLDR
The difference in sway between firm and foam standing evaluated the relative somatosensory contribution to balance and the binocular mean deviation score was calculated from Humphrey 24-2 SITA strategy tests.
Balance control in glaucoma.
TLDR
Glaucoma patients display differences in their visual and somatosensory contributions to quiet standing balance compared with control subjects, associated with the degree of binocular visual field loss, which suggests that balance control may be compromised in this patient group.
The Association of Glaucomatous Visual Field Loss and Balance
TLDR
Balance was worse in glaucoma patients with greater VF damage under foam surface testing as well as feet-together firm-surface conditions when somatosensory inputs were available.
Sensory integration abilities for balance in glaucoma, a preliminary study
TLDR
Findings suggest that reduced postural control in glaucoma is not entirely attributed to impaired peripheral visual inputs, and a larger study is needed to further investigate potential interactions between visual changes and central processing changes contributing to reduced balance function and increased incidence of falls.
Visual Impairment and Postural Sway among Older Adults with Glaucoma
TLDR
Among older adults with glaucoma, greater visual field loss or thinner RNFL thickness is associated with reduced postural stability, which may be a contributing factor in the increased risk of falls.
Dual tasking and balance in those with central and peripheral vision loss.
TLDR
Postural instability increases with the addition of a secondary task in older persons, which may put them at greater risk of falls.
Is primary open‐angle glaucoma part of a generalized sensory neurodegeneration? A review of the evidence
TLDR
This review summarizes what is known about these other non‐visual sensory changes, explores whether glaucoma is in fact part of a global neurodegenerative condition, and suggests areas for future research direction.
Age-related eye disease and mobility limitations in older adults.
TLDR
The results suggest that eye diseases, especially glaucoma, restrain the mobility of older people in many different ways, and it is important to further explore the impact of eye disease on mobility in this population, to develop interventions that could help affected older adults maintain their independence.

TLDR
For visual field tests obtained with the automated perimeter, AGIS investigators have developed objective, quantitative methods of scoring test reliability and severity of glaucomatous field loss.
Motion perception is abnormal in primary open-angle glaucoma and ocular hypertension.
TLDR
The findings support the suggestion that significant and selective damage to the magnocellular pathway occurs in OHT and POAG and indicate that motion threshold testing may reveal preclinical optic nerve disease in early POAG.
Patients’ perception of visual impairment in glaucoma: a pilot study
TLDR
This pilot study identified common problems encountered by patients which at the present time are not assessed in routine glaucoma care and identified a subgroup of questions that seems to be specific for glauca.
Motion Coherence Perimetry in Glaucoma and Suspected Glaucoma
Mobility performance in glaucoma.
TLDR
Glaucoma is associated with a modest decrease in mobility performance, and walking speed decreases with severity of the disease as estimated by threshold perimetry.
Contrast sensitivity and visual disability in chronic simple glaucoma.
TLDR
It was found that results from a group of tests, near visual acuity, visual field, and contrast sensitivity measures, are the best predictors of the difficulty experienced by patients in performing visually dependent daily activities.
The role of vision on postural strategy evaluated in patients affected by congenital nystagmus as an experimental model.
TLDR
The overall postural control in CN patients was impaired as demonstrated by the equilibrium score and by the changes of the postural strategy as well as an aspecific pattern of visual impairment and a pathological composite score.
Visual Contributions to Postural Stability in Older Adults
TLDR
The study findings confirm the importance of vision, in particular contrast sensitivity and stereopsis, in the control of posture under challenging conditions, and suggest some mechanisms for the association between impaired vision and falls in older people.
