Using automated perimetry the distribution of visual field loss in 40 chronic open angle glaucoma eyes (40 patients) was found to be predominantly in the nasal, supranasal, and superotemporal regions. The rate of change of visual field threshold values in seven regions of the field was measured by trend analysis over 44.9 ± 17.9 months. Seventeen eyes had a significant rate of field loss in one or more regions of the field with the remaining eyes either showing improvement or stability. Seven… CONTINUE READING
