    Correlation between multifocal pattern electroretinography and Fourier-domain OCT in eyes with temporal hemianopia from chiasmal compression

    Purpose To evaluate the correlation between multifocal pattern electroretinography (mfPERG) and Fourier-domain optical coherence tomography (FD-OCT) with regard to macular and retinal nerve fiber layer (RNFL) thickness in eyes with temporal hemianopia from chiasmal compression. Methods Twenty-five eyes from 25 patients with permanent temporal visual field defects from chiasmal compression and 25 healthy eyes were submitted to mfPERG using a stimulus pattern of 19 rectangles, standard automated perimetry and FD-OCT measurements. The mfPERG response was determined for groups of three rectangles for the nasal and temporal hemifields and for each quadrant. Macular thickness measurements were registered according to an overlaid ...
