Abstract

PRECIS: We used the Open Perimetry Interface (OPI) to design a static automated perimetry test of the full visual field. About half of our glaucoma cohort had defects in the far peripheral inferotemporal visual field that correlate well with related damage to the superior nasal optic disc. AIMS: To test the hypothesis that in glaucoma patients with mild visual loss, perimetric nerve fiber bundle defects present outside 30 degrees will correlate well with areas of Cirrus ocular coherence tomography (OCT) retinal nerve fiber layer thinning. METHODS: We tested 27 consecutive glaucoma subjects with mild vision loss (mean deviation better than -4 dB) with a SITA standard test, 2 size V custom OPI..
