1. A Comparison between Microperimetry and Standard Achromatic Perimetry of the Central Visual Field in Eyes with Glaucomatous Paracentral Visual Field Defects

    Background and Aims: We correlated retinal sensitivity as determined by scanning laser ophthalmoscope microperimetry (SLO-MP) in glaucomatous eyes with paracentral visual field (VF) defects detected by standard automated perimetry (SAP). Methods: Twenty eyes with glaucomatous optic neuropathy and a SAP VF defect involving the central 16 test points (at least one point with p<1% in the 24-2 VF) were enrolled. Eyes with diseases other than glaucoma were excluded. All patients underwent SLO-MP and SAP of the central 10 degrees. Results from each eye were divided into 4 quadrants for analysis. Normal and abnormal quadrants by SAP were compared to ...
