Abstract
Objectives To compare the severity, size, and depth of glaucomatous visual field defects using standard full threshold (FT), Swedish interactive threshold algorithm (SITA) standard (SS), and SITA fast (SF) algorithms of the Humphrey perimeter. Methods A prospective observational case series of 77 patients with glaucoma performed FT, SS, and SF 30-2 white-on-white testing programs on the same day on 2 occasions for 1 month. The severity of defects was compared using the mean deviation, pattern standard deviation, Advanced Glaucoma Intervention Study, and Hodapp-Anderson-Parrish severity scores. The sizes of defects were compared using the total number of abnormal points on the pattern deviation plot that fit standard criteria for glaucomatous visual field defects. The depths of the defects were compared using the sum of the threshold values for points identified in the pattern deviation plot as fitting criteria for glaucomatous defects. Results The mean deviations were slightly better using the SS (−9.6 ± 7.1 dB) or the SF (−9.1 ± 6.7 dB) algorithm compared with the FT algorithm (−10.3 ± 7.1 dB) ( P P = .08) and SF (8.1 ± 3.6, P = .19) compared with FT (8.3 ± 3.3), although the pattern standard deviation was higher in SS fields compared with SF fields ( P P P = .004) but not the SF algorithm (20.0 ± 10.6) ( P = .11). The depth of defects measured by the SS (220.4 ± 108.0 dB) and SF (219.8 ± 101.3 dB) algorithms was significantly shallower compared with that measured by the FT algorithm (152.3 ± 79.1 dB) ( P P = .12). Conclusions Glaucomatous defects are measured significantly shallower using the new SITA algorithms but are approximately the same size and severity compared with FT measurements. Care should be taken when using threshold values to compare glaucomatous defects in a patient when converting from FT to SITA algorithms.

OBJECTIVE: To determine the frequency with which visual field abnormalities observed on follow-up visual fields for patients in the Ocular Hypertension Treatment Study were confirmed on retest. METHODS: Between April 1, 1994, and March 1, 1999, 21,603 visual fields were obtained from 1637 patients in the Ocular Hypertension Treatment Study. When follow-up visual fields are outside the normal limits on the Glaucoma Hemifield Test, the Corrected Pattern Standard Deviation (P<.05), or both, subsequ...

METHODS. One designated eye from each of 29 patients (age 67.3 ± 10.2 years; mean ± SD) experienced in automated perimetry was examined with the four algorithms on each of three visits, using the Humphrey Field Analyzer 750 and Program 30-2. RESULTS. The group mean...

In this study, we investigated the correlation between pattern electroretinogram (PERG) and optical coherence tomography angiography (OCTA) parameters for diagnosis in patients with normal-tension glaucoma (NTG). Forty-nine normal individuals (49 eyes) and 60 patients with NTG (60 eyes) were enrolled. OCTA and PERG parameters, such as macular vessel density (VD) and the amplitude of N35-P50 and P50-N95, were measured. Correlation analyses were performed between the parameters, and the area under...

As laser refractive surgeries (LRS) have been widely performed to correct myopia, ophthalmologists easily encounter patients with glaucoma who have a history of LRS. It is well known that intraocular pressure (IOP) in eyes with glaucoma is not accurate when measured using Goldmann applanation tonometry. However, risk factors for glaucoma progression, particularly those associated with measured IOP, have rarely been studied. We analysed data for 40 patients with a history of LRS and 50 age-matche...

Using either 24-2 or 10-2 visual field (VF) testing only is not enough to cover all the various types of glaucomatous VF defects. We investigated the performance of the combined 24-2 and 10-2 perimetry when conducted together and separately using the structure-function relationship. A total of 30 glaucoma patients with isolated peripheral nasal step, 37 patients with isolated paracentral scotoma, and 38 patients with both paracentral and nasal scotoma were included. To create the combined Humphr...

Glaucoma is a group of optic neuropathies characterized by a progressive degeneration of retina ganglion cells (RGCs) and their axons that precedes functional changes detected on the visual field. The macular ganglion cell complex (GCC), available in commercial Fourier-domain optical coherence tomography, allows the quantification of the innermost retinal layers that are potentially involved in the glaucomatous damage, including the retinal nerve fiber (RNFL), ganglion cell and inner plexiform l...
