Abstract
PURPOSE. Standard automated perimetry (SAP) shows a marked increase in variability in damaged areas of the visual field. This study was conducted to test the hypothesis that larger stimuli are associated with more uniform variability, by investigating the retest variability of four perimetry tests: standard automated perimetry size III (SAP III), with the SITA standard strategy; SAP size V (SAP V), with the full-threshold strategy; Matrix (FDT II), and Motion perimetry. METHODS. One eye each of 120 patients with glaucoma was examined on the same day with these four perimetric tests and retested 1 to 8 weeks later. The decibel scales were adjusted to make the test’s scales numerically similar. Retest variability was examined by establishing the distributions of retest threshold estimates, for each threshold level observed at the first test. The 5th and 95th percentiles of the retest distribution were used as point-wise limits of retest variability. Regression analyses were performed to quantify the relationship between visual field sensitivity and variability. RESULTS. With SAP III, the retest variability increased substantially with reducing sensitivity. Corresponding increases with SAP V, Matrix, and Motion perimetry were considerably smaller or absent. With SAP III, sensitivity explained 22% of the retest variability (r 2 ), whereas corresponding data for SAP V, Matrix, and Motion perimetry were 12%, 2%, and 2%, respectively. CONCLUSIONS. Variability of Matrix and Motion perimetry does not increase as substantially as that of SAP III in damaged areas of the visual field. Increased sampling with the larger stimuli of these techniques is the likely explanation for this finding. These properties may make these stimuli excellent candidates for early detection of visual field progression. (Invest Ophthalmol Vis Sci. 2009;50:974‐979) DOI:10.1167/iovs.08-1789

PURPOSE: To determine learning effect in healthy patients without perimetric experience, tested with the frequency doubling technology perimetry, with the new model Matrix. PATIENTS AND METHODS: Frequency doubling technology in the 30-2 threshold mode was performed on 37 healthy subjects. Each subject was tested twice in different sessions. The test always began with the right eye (RE) and continued with the left eye (LE). To evaluate learning effect the results of the REs at the first session w...

Conventional static automated perimetry provides important clinical information, but its utility is limited by considerable test-retest variability. Fixational eye movements during testing could contribute to variability. To assess this possibility, it is important to know how much sensitivity change would be caused by a given eye movement. To investigate this, we have evaluated the gradient, the rate at which sensitivity changes with location. We tested one eye each, twice within 3 weeks, of 29...

Purpose. To evaluate the ability of the cortical pooling model to predict the effects of random, mild ganglion cell loss, we compared the predictions of the model with the age-related loss and variability in achromatic and chromatic contrast sensitivity. Methods. The relative sensitivity to small (0.5°) and large (3.0°) stimuli was compared in older (mean = 67 years, n = 27) and younger (mean = 23 years, n = 32) adults. Contrast sensitivity for modulations along the luminance, equiluminant L-con...

The frequency-doubling technology (FDT) perimeter (Carl Zeiss Meditec, Dublin, CA; Welch-Allyn, Skaneateles, NY) measures contrast sensitivity to low-spatial-frequency grating stimuli (0.25 cyc/deg) that are counterphase flickered at a rapid rate (25 Hz). Many studies have demonstrated that FDT perimetry shows good sensitivity and specificity for detecting glaucoma.1–7 The 10° square stimuli in the perimeter restrict the ability to localize visual field defects spatially, however, which limits t...

PURPOSE. To investigate the effects of divided attention on conventional automated perimetry (CAP) and luminance size threshold perimetry (LSTP). METHODS. Ten healthy subjects, ages 27 to 65, with two perimetry types (CAP and LSTP) were tested in random order. At a later session, these tests were given with a mental workload to simulate the effect of anxiety or distraction on subjects performing visual field testing, also in random order. The mental workload, the Paced Auditory Serial Addition T...

Abstract The FDT perimeter is a compact and relatively inexpensive perimeter whose transportability, tolerance to refractive errors, and rapid test times (less than 1 minute per eye) make it a suitable candidate for visual field screening. It is a uniform finding that the C-20-1 screening protocol of the FDT perimeter provides good sensitivity and specificity for the detection of moderate and severe losses in glaucoma. Sensitivity can be increased by use of the C-20-5 screening protocol. In addi...

PURPOSE. To investigate the distributions of threshold estimates with the Swedish Interactive Threshold Algorithms (SITA) Standard, SITA Fast, and the Full Threshold algorithm (Humphrey Field Analyzer; Zeiss-Humphrey Instruments, Dublin, CA) and to compare the pointwise test-retest variability of these strategies.

Feedforward models of visual cortex appear to be inconsistent with a well-known property of cortical cells: contrast invariance of orientation tuning. The models9 fixed threshold broadens orientation tuning as contrast increases, whereas in real cells tuning width is invariant with contrast. We have compared the orientation tuning of spike and membrane potential responses in single cells. Both are contrast invariant, yet a threshold-linear relation applied to the membrane potential accurately pr...

Purpose: To investigate the clinical significance of vessel density (VD) on visual field (VF) progression regarding the severity of glaucoma. Methods: A total of 130 eyes were recruited in this retrospective and longitudinal study. Superficial and deep VDs in circumpapillary and macular regions were measured via ImageJ. The rate of VF progression was defined as the mean deviation (MD) slope (dB/year). Linear regression was used to verify factors affecting deterioration of VF. The eyes with lower...

Standard Automated Perimetry (SAP) is the gold standard for evaluating the presence of visual field defects. Nevertheless, it has requirements such as prolonged attention, stable fixation and a need for a motor response that limit application in various patient groups. Therefore, a novel approach using eye movements (EM) – as a complementary technique to SAP - was developed and tested in clinical settings by our group. However, the original method uses a screen-based eye-tracker which still requ...

Significance Optical coherence tomography (OCT) summary measures have been suggested as a way to detect progression in eyes with advanced glaucoma. Here, we show that these measures have serious flaws largely due to segmentation errors. However, inspection of the images and thickness maps can be clinically useful. Purpose This study aimed to test the hypothesis that recently suggested global OCT measures for detecting progression in eyes with advanced progression are seriously affected by segmen...

Diabetic retinal disease remains a leading cause of vision loss despite currently available screening methods, ocular treatments, and efforts to control metabolic dysfunction. It is now understood that diabetes damages the entire retina and the cellular components of the neurovascular unit. Multiple studies have demonstrated impairment of various aspects of retinal function across the spectrum of retinopathy severity. Here we review these tests, the principles underlying their use, clinical data...

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.

Clinicians who manage glaucoma patients carefully monitor the visual field to determine if treatments are effective or interventions are needed. Visual field tests may reflect disease progression or variability among examinations. We describe the approaches and perimetric tests used to evaluate glaucomatous visual field progression and factors that are important for identifying progression. These include stimulus size, which area of the visual field to assess (central versus peripheral), and the...
