PURPOSE To assess the spatial distribution of glaucomatous visual field defects (VFDs) obtained with regionally condensed stimulus arrangements. METHODS Sixty-three eyes of 63 glaucoma subjects were examined with threshold-estimating automated static perimetry (full threshold 4-2-1 dB strategy with at least three reversals) on an automatic campimeter or a full-field perimeter. Stimuli were added by the examiner to regionally enhance spatial resolution in regions that were suspicious for a…

Initial arcuate defects within the central 10 degrees in glaucoma.

To better understand the relationship between the spatial patterns of functional and structural abnormalities in patients with glaucomatous arcuate defects largely confined to the central 10° on achromatic perimetry, frequency-domain optical coherence tomography is used.

Threshold Automated Perimetry of the Full Visual Field in Patients With Glaucoma With Mild Visual Loss

A more pronounced decrease was found in visual sensitivity with eccentricity in the patients with glaucoma compared with the ocular healthy participants across the full visual field, and size V 30-2 testing identified significantly more abnormal test locations than size III 30- 2.

Customizing Perimetric Locations Based on En Face Images of Retinal Nerve Fiber Bundles With Glaucomatous Damage

A rapid perimetric test guided by high-resolution images of RNFL bundles in patients with glaucoma indicated ganglion cell damage under all of the visible RNFL defects.

Central Glaucomatous Damage of the Macula Can Be Overlooked by Conventional OCT Retinal Nerve Fiber Layer Thickness Analyses.

Conventional cpRNFL analyses on commercial OCT reports can miss macular (central field) damage and additional tests, such as macular cube scans and/or 10-2 VFs, should be performed.

Early glaucoma involves both deep local, and shallow widespread, retinal nerve fiber damage of the macular region.

Optical coherence tomography scans of the circumpapillary RNFL and the macular RGC+ layer can aid in the identification of these defects and help in the interpretation of 24-2 and 10-2 VF tests.

Choosing two points to add to the 24-2 pattern to better describe macular visual field damage due to glaucoma

Adding a pair of locations to the superior macular region of the Humphrey Visual Field 24-2 pattern increases the number of abnormal locations identified in individuals with glaucoma.

Detectability of Visual Field Defects in Glaucoma With High-resolution Perimetry

To detect subtle VF defects within the eccentricity of 10 degrees, high-resolution perimetry with the test point resolution of <1.5 degrees is necessary.

A Test of a Model of Glaucomatous Damage of the Macula With High-Density Perimetry: Implications for the Locations of Visual Field Test Points.

The model describes the region of the superior VF vulnerable to arcuate damage and can be used to determine the optimal locations for adding test points to the commonly used VF test pattern (24-2).



Specification of progression in glaucomatous visual field loss, applying locally condensed stimulus arrangements

Applying individually condensed test grids remarkably enhances the detection rate of glaucomatous visual field deterioration (at the expense of an increased examination time) compared to conventional stimulus arrangements.

Increased detection rate of glaucomatous visual field damage with locally condensed grids: a comparison between fundus-oriented perimetry and conventional visual field examination.

Fundus-oriented perimetry that uses individually condensed test grids significantly increases the detection rate of glaucomatous VFDs in morphologically conspicuous areas compared with CAP using equidistant (6 degrees x 6 degrees) target arrangements.

Classifying Patterns of Localized Glaucomatous Visual Field Defects on Automated Perimetry

The proposed definitions of topographical glaucomatous field defects based on the pattern deviation probability plot are simple to use in clinical practice with good interreader agreement.

Visual field and retinal nerve fiber layer comparisons in glaucoma.

Semiquantitative retinal nerve fiber layer (RNFL) scores given separately to diffuse and localized changes of the RNFL were correlated with the overall mean retinal sensitivity and visual field

Glaucoma Hemifield Test. Automated visual field evaluation.

An algorithm for automated evaluation of single static threshold visual field test results in glaucoma, which uses empirically determined limits of normality for up-down differences in the Statpac probability maps of the Humphrey Field Analyzer to detect localized visual field loss.

Use of high spatial resolution perimetry to identify scotomata not apparent with conventional perimetry in the nasal field of glaucomatous subjects

HSRP can identify scotoma in glaucomatous eyes in the nasal field which may be missed with the lower spatial resolution of conventional perimetry.


Computerized visual field testing with the Competer automatic perimeter including automatic profile perimetry revealed early glaucomatous field loss in 9 of 10 eyes with photographically demonstrable
