Glaucoma is a common disease of the eye that often results in partial blindness. The main symptom of glaucoma is progressive loss of sight in the visual field over time. The clinical management of glaucoma involves monitoring the progress of the disease using a sequence of regular visual field tests. However, there is currently no universally accepted standard method for classifying changes in the visual field test data. Sequence matching techniques typically rely on similarity measures. However, visual field measurements are very noisy, particularly in people with glaucoma. It is therefore difficult to establish a reference data set including both stable and progressive visual fields. This ..
