    Frequency doubling technology, optical coherence technology and pattern electroretinogram in ocular hypertension

    Background To assess which of three methods, namely, optical coherence tomography (OCT), pattern electroretinogram (PERG) or frequency-doubling technology (FDT), is the most sensitive and specific for detecting early glaucomatous damage in ocular hypertension (OH). Methods Fifty-two patients with OH (24 men and 28 women, mean age of 56+/-9.6 years) with an intraocular pressure (IOP) > 21 mmHg and fifty-two control patients (25 men and 27 women, mean age of 54.8+/-10.4 years) with IOP < 21 mmHg, were assessed. All the patients had normal visual acuity, normal optic disk and normal perimetric indices. All subjects underwent OCT, FDT ...
