Purpose To evaluate an effective functional strategy for detecting glaucomatous damage of the macula in preperimetric to perimetric glaucoma. Design Cross-sectional study. Methods Preperimetric glaucoma patients (n = 102) and perimetric glaucoma patients (n = 88) with isolated paracentral scotoma or combined paracentral scotoma were enrolled in this study. Global and sectoral mean sensitivities (MS) were evaluated using 10-2 standard automated perimetry (SAP) with a stimulus of sizes III (0.43-d...

The standard automated perimetry (SAP) 24-2 test cannot adequately test the paracentral region because test points are located sparsely in macular area where is crowded with retinal ganglion cells (RGCs), even though paracentral scotoma is clinically related to a risk of losing visual function. More sensitive visual field (VF) tests are needed to assess paracentral VF defects precisely. We investigated the structure-function relationship on the SAP 10-2 test and the frequency doubling technology...

Purpose To investigate risk factors for the development of the hypertensive phase after implantation of the Ahmed glaucoma valve (AGV). Methods A total of 128 patients who had undergone AGV implantation were included in this study. The hypertensive phase was defined as intraocular pressure (IOP) > 21 mmHg during the first 3 months after surgery. Failure was defined IOP > 21 mmHg or less than a 20% reduction from baseline on two consecutive study visits after 3 months. Results Mean age and preope...

Glaucoma is a leading cause of irreversible vision loss. Mental health and quality of life (QoL) are important issues for patients with glaucoma because visual impairment can be related to those. Analysis of mental health status or QoL in undiagnosed glaucoma patients can be free of the bias caused by awareness of the disease itself. In this study, the association between mental health status or QoL and undiagnosed glaucoma, along with the effects of visual acuity or visual field damage was inve...

To investigate the lamina cribrosa (LC) depth and its relationship with the cup-to-disc ratio (CDR) in the eyes with generalized increased optic disc cupping and CDR asymmetry.Glaucoma suspect subjects with a CDR≥0.7, CDR asymmetry ≥0.2 in the absence of visual field (VF) loss, and normal control subjects were enrolled. The optic nerve head was imaged using the enhanced depth imaging modes of Spectralis optical coherence tomography. The LC depth was determined at the mid-horizontal, and the supe...

We evaluated whether the structure-function relationship in glaucoma patients with parafoveal scotoma or peripheral scotoma differs with the use of frequency doubling technology (FDT) or short-wavelength automated perimetry (SWAP) compared to standard automated perimetry (SAP).Glaucoma patients with isolated parafoveal scotoma (PFS) within the central 10° of fixation in 1 hemifield and those with an isolated peripheral nasal step (PNS) within the nasal periphery outside 10° of fixation in one he...

Excitotoxicity, glutamate-induced toxic effects to retinal ganglion cells (RGCs), is one of several mechanisms of RGC loss suggested in glaucoma. In this study, we focused on the role of glutamate transporter of glial cells as well as N-methyl-d-aspartate (NMDA) receptor with regard to glutamate toxicity in glaucoma. We also investigated whether α2-adrenoceptor activation could modulate glutamate transporters and NMDA receptors in a chronic ocular hypertension model. Brimonidine 0.15% was admini...

PURPOSE: To investigate retinal nerve fiber layer (RNFL) configuration in the optic nerve head (ONH) and peripapillary area according to disc size and to determine whether it explains cup discrepancy among eyes with different disc sizes. METHODS: Horizontal and vertical RNFL curvature and mean thickness were measured using confocal scanning laser ophthalmoscopy (Heidelberg Retina Tomograph) in 63 normal subjects grouped by disc size. Average and quadrant RNFL thickness, disc size, average cup-to...
