BACKGROUND/AIMS: A recent study has shown that the paracentral upper visual field in the macular region is often affected in glaucoma and suggested that two test locations within the central 10° should be added to the Humphrey 24-2 visual field test pattern to detect such damage. This study employed data collected using a different visual field test pattern to determine whether the same two-test locations are supported as the most informative regarding visual field loss. METHODS: A data set of 62 patients with glaucoma and 48 controls had visual field assessments on the Medmont perimeter M700 (Central Threshold or Glaucoma test). Twelve 24-2 locations within central 10° of visual field were ..View full abstract
