1. Regional Relationship Between Retinal Nerve Fiber Layer Thickness and Corresponding Visual Field Sensitivity in Glaucomatous Eyes

    Objective  To establish the structure-function relationship between peripapillary retinal nerve fiber layer (RNFL) thickness and visual field (VF) test points in standard automated perimetry. Methods  We included 213 eyes with open-angle glaucoma and VF loss in this cross-sectional study. Correlations between individual VF sensitivity at 52 test points and peripapillary RNFL thickness divided into 16 sectors were calculated. The RNFL thickness was measured by Stratus optical coherence tomography. A new VF cluster map corresponding to RNFL sectors was generated by grouping the VF test points with the highest relation to each RNFL sector. Results  The VF sensitivity at each test ...
