    Functional characteristics of glaucoma related arcuate defects seen on OCT en face visualisation of the retinal nerve fibre layer

    Purpose To assess continuity of perimetric defects corresponding to arcuate defects seen on optical coherence tomography (OCT) en face reflectance images of the retinal nerve fibre layer (RNFL) in patients with glaucoma. Methods Seven patients with glaucoma who had arcuate structural defects on OCT RNFL en face images were recruited. Static suprathreshold stimuli were presented along different meridians to localise perimetric defects in the corresponding hemifield. Then two contrasts, one 6 dB greater than the other, were used with kinetic perimetry to assess the slope of the defect. Findings with kinetic and 24‐2 perimetry were compared. Results Static perimetry ...
