Test-retest variability of frequency-doubling perimetry and conventional perimetry in glaucoma patients and normal subjects. (1/1026)

PURPOSE: To compare the test-retest variability characteristics of frequency-doubling perimetry, a new perimetric test, with those of conventional perimetry in glaucoma patients and normal control subjects. METHODS: The study sample contained 64 patients and 47 normal subjects aged 66.16+/-11.86 and 64.26+/-7.99 years (mean +/- SD), respectively. All subjects underwent frequency-doubling perimetry (using the threshold mode) and conventional perimetry (using program 30-2 of the Humphrey Field Analyzer; Humphrey Instruments, San Leandro, CA) in one randomly selected eye. Each test was repeated at 1-week intervals for five tests with each technique over 4 weeks. Empirical 5th and 95th percentiles of the distribution of threshold deviations at retest were determined for all combinations of single tests and mean of two tests, stratified by threshold deviation. The influence of visual field eccentricity and overall visual field loss on variability also were examined. RESULTS: Mean test time with frequency-doubling perimetry in patients and normal control subjects was 5.90 and 5.25 minutes, respectively, and with conventional perimetry was 17.20 and 14.01 minutes, respectively. In patients, there was a significant correlation between the results of the two techniques, in the full field and in quadrants, whereas in normal subjects there was no such correlation. In patients, the retest variability of conventional perimetry in locations with 20-dB loss was 120% (single tests) and 127% (mean tests) higher compared with that in locations with 0-dB loss. Comparative figures for frequency-doubling perimetry were 40% and 47%, respectively. Variability also increased more with threshold deviation in normal subjects tested with conventional perimetry. In both patients and normal subjects, variability increased with visual field eccentricity in conventional perimetry, but not in frequency-doubling perimetry. Both techniques showed an increase in variability with overall visual field damage. CONCLUSIONS: Frequency-doubling perimetry has different test-retest variability characteristics than conventional perimetry and may have potential for monitoring glaucomatous field damage.  (+info)

Between-algorithm, between-individual differences in normal perimetric sensitivity: full threshold, FASTPAC, and SITA. Swedish Interactive Threshold algorithm. (2/1026)

PURPOSE: To determine the between-algorithm differences in perimetric sensitivity for the Swedish Interactive Threshold algorithm (SITA) Standard, SITA Fast, FASTPAC, and Full Threshold algorithms; to determine the between-subject, between-algorithm differences in the magnitude of the normal variation in sensitivity. METHODS: The sample comprised 50 normal subjects (mean age, 52.9 +/- 18.5 years) experienced in automated perimetry. One randomly assigned eye was examined at three visits with Program 30-2 of the Humphrey Field Analyzer (HFA). The first visit was a familiarization session. A two-period crossover design with order randomization within visits was used over the second and third visits. SITA Standard, SITA Fast, and HFA 640 Full Threshold were administered during one visit. FASTPAC and HFA 750 Full Threshold were administered during the remaining visit. RESULTS: Group mean Mean Sensitivity was 0.8 dB higher for SITA Standard than for Full Threshold (P < 0.001) and 1.3 dB higher for SITA Fast than for Full Threshold (P < 0.001). A similar trend was found between SITA and FASTPAC. The group mean Mean Sensitivity for SITA Fast was 0.5 dB higher than for SITA Standard (P < 0.001). The pointwise between-algorithm difference in sensitivity was similar for all algorithms. The pointwise between-algorithm, between-subject variability was lower for SITA. The examination durations for SITA Fast and SITA Standard were half those for FASTPAC and Full Threshold; SITA Fast was 41% that of SITA Standard (P < 0.001). CONCLUSIONS: SITA produced marginally higher mean mean sensitivity compared with that of existing algorithms and markedly reduced examination duration. The reduced between-subject variability of SITA should result in narrower confidence limits for definition of normality.  (+info)

Looking behind a pathological blind spot in human retina. (3/1026)

Recent work suggests that dichoptic lateral interactions occur in the region of the visual field of one eye that corresponds to the physiological blind spot in the other eye (Tripathy, S. P., & Levi, D. M. (1994). The two-dimensional shape of spatial interaction zones in the parafovea. Vision Research, 34, 1127-1138.) Here we ask whether dichoptic lateral interactions occur in the region of the visual field of one eye that corresponds to a pathological blind spot, a retinal coloboma in the other eye. To address this question we had the observer report the orientation of a letter 'T' presented within this region in the presence of flanking 'T's presented to the other eye around the coloboma. A large drop in performance was seen due to the flanks, showing the existence of dichoptic lateral interactions in this monocular region. The presence of these dichoptic interactions in a region lacking direct retinal afferents from one eye is consistent with the proposition that long-range horizontal connections of the primary visual cortex mediate these interactions.  (+info)

Does visual sensitivity improve between 5 and 8 years? A study of automated visual field examination. (4/1026)

In 74 normal subjects (62 children aged 5-8 years and 12 adults), we tested the widely-held belief that visual sensitivity improves substantially during childhood. Maturation of the retino-striate pathways is generally invoked to account for age-related changes in visual sensitivity. We evaluated the extent to which attentional factors unduly emphasized the effect of age on the purely physiological mechanisms. After a specially-designed familiarization procedure, sensitivity was fully evaluated at two locations in the superior temporal field using a bracketing technique (Octopus 2000R). False-positive (FP) and false-negative (FN) catch-trials were interspersed with the sequence of stimuli. Analyses demonstrated that: (1) age affected sensitivity; and (2) the general level of attentiveness varied not only with age, but also among subjects in the same age group. We then estimated the extent to which improved visual sensitivity may reflect a concomitant evolution of vigilance. Firstly, controlled variance analyses indicated that factors for evaluating attentiveness (rate of FN responses, slope of the psychometric function at the median, and goodness of fit) were indeed much better predictors than age of the sensitivity measured. Secondly and more significantly, the grouping of subjects into homogeneous subgroups, on the basis of their attentional performance, showed that children as young as 5 years may have a visual sensitivity that is only marginally lower than that of adults.  (+info)

Models for the description of angioscotomas. (5/1026)

To describe small scotomas in visual field examinations several statistical models are proposed and applied to the evaluation of angioscotoma in 13 ophthalmologically normal subjects. A special perimetric grid is used where thresholds can be estimated along a line of narrow-spaced test points which crosses the predicted location of the retinal vessel. A two-stage analysis employs single estimations to fit a threshold curve by means of a special parametric description of the luminance difference sensitivity threshold as a function of stimulus position. An alternative model incorporates the threshold as a function of position into the probabilistic description of the binary response (stimulus seen/not seen).  (+info)

Angioscotoma detection with fundus-oriented perimetry. A study with dark and bright stimuli of different sizes. (6/1026)

Fundus-oriented perimetry (FOP) was used to evaluate the effectiveness of different-sized bright and dark stimuli in detecting and quantitatively measuring angioscotoma. The foveolas and optic disks of digitized fundus images were aligned with their psychophysical counterparts to construct individual grids of perimetric stimuli. Each grid included a linear set of test point locations crossing a retinal vessel. Angioscotomas immediately became visible in nine of 13 healthy normal volunteers tested with FOP. Additional mathematical processing of local loss of differential light sensitivity (dls) disclosed an angioscotoma for at least one stimulus condition in all persons tested. The angioscomas were usually deeper for small (12) targets than for large (32') ones. On the other hand, the overall noise at dls thresholds was generally higher for small than for large stimuli regardless of whether the stimuli were bright or dark. No noteworthy differences were found in detection rates or signal-to-noise ratios under different stimulus conditions (dark/bright/small/large). FOP permits the individual arrangement of stimuli for specific morphological conditions and is thus capable of detecting even minute visual field defects such as angioscotomas.  (+info)

Preperimetric glaucoma diagnosis by confocal scanning laser tomography of the optic disc. (7/1026)

AIM: To evaluate the ability of confocal scanning laser tomography of the optic nerve head to detect glaucomatous optic nerve damage in ocular hypertensive eyes without visual field defects. METHODS: The study included 50 normal subjects, 61 glaucoma patients with glaucomatous changes in the optic disc and visual field, and 102 "preperimetric" patients with increased intraocular pressure, normal visual fields, and glaucomatous appearance of the optic disc as evaluated on colour stereo optic disc photographs. For all individuals, confocal scanning laser tomographs of the optic nerve head were taken using the Heidelberg retina tomograph (HRT; software 2.01). RESULTS: Almost all investigated HRT variables varied significantly (p < 0.05) between the normal eyes and preperimetric glaucoma eyes with pronounced overlap between the two study groups. Corresponding to the overlap, sensitivity and specificity values were relatively low when HRT variables were taken to differentiate between normal and preperimetric glaucoma eyes. At a given specificity of 95% highest sensitivities were found for the variables "rim area in the superior disc sector" (24.8%), "nerve fibre layer thickness in the inferior disc sector" (26.5%), and "rim volume in the superior disc sector" (25.5%). A multivariate approach increased sensitivity to 42.2% at a given specificity of 95%. For the glaucoma group highest sensitivity values were reached by rim volume in the superior disc sector (73.8%) and rim area (72.1%); the multivariate approach reached 83.6%. CONCLUSIONS: Owing to pronounced overlapping between the groups, confocal scanning laser tomography of the optic nerve head has relatively low diagnostic power to differentiate between normal eyes and preperimetric glaucoma eyes. One of the reasons may be the biological interindividual variability of quantitative optic disc variables.  (+info)

Measurement of retinal nerve fibre layer by scanning laser polarimetry and high pass resolution perimetry in normal tension glaucoma with relatively high or low intraocular pressure. (8/1026)

AIMS: To determine whether any differences may exist in the relation between the neural capacity as determined by high pass resolution perimetry and the thickness of the retinal nerve fibre layer (RNFL) in patients having normal tension glaucoma (NTG) with a relatively high intraocular pressure (IOP) between 16 and 21 mm Hg (HNTG) v those with a lower IOP below 15 mm Hg (LNTG). METHODS: Scanning laser polarimetry and high pass resolution perimetry were performed in 20 eyes of 20 patients with HNTG and 21 eyes of 21 patients with LNTG. The correlation between total and regional thickness of the peripapillary RNFL and the corresponding total and regional neural capacity with linear regression analysis were evaluated. RESULTS: Overall, although the total RNFL thickness was not significantly correlated with the total neural capacity, the RNFL thickness in each of the superior and inferior quadrants was significantly correlated with the corresponding regional neural capacity (r = 0.44, p = 0.0045; r = 0.39, p = 0.0126 for each). The RNFL thickness in each of the superior and inferior quadrants in the HNTG group was significantly correlated with the corresponding regional neural capacity (r = 0.52, p = 0.0196; r = 0.49, p = 0.0286 for each). No significant correlation between neural capacity and the RNFL thickness was observed either globally or regionally in the LNTG group. CONCLUSION: The degree of the correlation between neural capacity as determined by high pass resolution perimetry and thickness of the RNFL as measured by scanning laser polarimetry appeared to differ in NTG patients with an IOP higher than 15 mm Hg v those with a lower IOP.  (+info)

Abstract: : Purpose:To compare the severity, size, and depth of glaucomatous visual field defects using standard Full Threshold (FT), SITA Standard (SS), and SITA Fast (SF) algorithms of the Humphrey perimeter. Methods:A prospective observational case series of 77 glaucoma patients who performed FT, SS, and SF 30-2 white-on-white testing programs on the same day on 2 separate occasions during a 1 month period was performed. The severity of defects was compared using the mean deviation, pattern standard deviation, AGIS (Advanced Glaucoma Intervention Study), and Hodapp-Anderson-Parrish severity scores. The sizes of defects were compared using the total number of abnormal points on the Pattern Deviation Plot that fit standard criteria for glaucomatous visual field defects. The depths of the defects were compared using the sum of the threshold values for points identified in the Pattern Deviation Plot as fitting criteria for glaucomatous defects. Results:The mean deviations were slightly better ...

Purpose: To determine the extent to which the 24-2 visual field (VF) misses macular damage confirmed with both 10-2 VF and optical coherence tomography (OCT) tests and to evaluate the patterns of damage missed. Methods: One hundred forty-one eyes of 141 glaucoma patients or suspects underwent 24-2 VF (mean deviation [MD] better than −6 dB), 10-2 VF, and OCT testing. Retinal nerve fiber layer (RNFL) and retinal ganglion cell plus inner plexiform (RGC+) probability plots were combined with 10-2 VF probability plots. Eyes were classified as abnormal macula if abnormal regions on both the 10-2 VF and OCT plots agreed. The number of abnormal eyes missed (i.e., false negatives) was determined for the following 24-2 VF metrics: MD; pattern standard deviation (PSD); glaucoma hemifield test (GHT); cluster criteria (CC); and abnormal points within ± 10°. Eyes that were missed on one or more of the 24-2 metrics were classified by damage type based upon circumpapillary RNFL thickness plots. Results: ...
b>PURPOSE. To evaluate the diagnostic power of conventional, achromatic, automated perimetry (CAP), shortwavelength automated perimetry (SWAP), frequency-doubling technology (FDT) perimetry, and visual evoked potentials (VEP) in a group of patients with multiple sclerosis (MS) with or without a history of optic neuritis. METHODS. Thirty eyes of 15 patients (5 male, 10 female, average age 387 years) with confirmed diagnosis of MS underwent CAP, SWAP (Humphrey 750-II VFA, program central 30-2, full-threshold strategy), FDT perimetry (program N-30), and pattern VEPs. Sixteen eyes (53.3%) had no history of ocular involvement and a negative ophthalmologic examination. They were matched with a control group of 10 healthy volunteers (4 male, 6 female, average age 3110 years). The mean deviation (MD) and the pattern standard deviation (PSD) of the two groups were compared (t-test). Fourteen eyes (46.7%) had, on the contrary, a history of optic neuritis. Inside this group, the MD and the PSD of the three ...
At baseline, all individuals with suspect or abnormal discs on clinical examination underwent automated visual field testing. The Humphrey® Field Analyzer II - 720i series (Carl Zeiss Ophthalmic Systems, Inc.) was used. A suspect or abnormal disc was defined as a vertical cup/disc ratio (VCDR) of 0.7 or above; optic disc cupping asymmetry between the eyes of more than 0.2 VCDR; or any other abnormal features. A random sample of five individuals per cluster (10%) also underwent visual field testing to provide normative data.. Participants performed the Swedish Interactive Thresholding Algorithm (SITA) STANDARD 24-2. SITA Fast was used to determine the threshold level in all participants having visual field analysis. Appropriate corrective lenses for refractive errors were used when needed. An automated fixation monitor was used throughout. If the SITA fast test was reliable (following manufacturers guidelines) the SITA standard test was performed. If the SITA fast was unreliable then this was ...

Mean sensitivity was somewhat higher with ...
Purpose: : We developed a neural model relating ganglion cell responses to perimetric sensitivity (IOVS 2004;45:466; IOVS 2011;52:764). Using baseline data from a longitudinal study of contrast sensitivity perimetry (CSP) whose design was based on this model, we tested its predictions about agreement between CSP and clinical measures of glaucomatous damage. Methods: : One eye each of 59 patients with glaucomatous field loss and 38 age-similar controls was tested with CSP, CAP (conventional automated perimetry), FDP (frequency-doubling perimetry) and ocular coherence tomography for RNFL (retinal nerve fiber layer) thickness. For each person, arithmetic means were computed for both RNFL thicknesses and perimetric sensitivities using maps of visual field locations associated with superior temporal (ST) and inferior temporal (IT) optic nerve sectors (IOVS 2002;43:2213). For each patient, defect depth for each sector was computed as log difference from mean of the controls. A ceiling of 1.5 log unit ...
Five forms of perimetry were used, two clinical tests and three custom 31 tests. One form of custom stimulus was a simple luminance increment, known as a blob stimulus, 35 that is defined by the standard deviation of the Gaussian window. The other form of custom stimulus was a Gabor sine, 31 a sine wave grating multiplied by a Gaussian window. Examples of the stimuli used are shown in the left panel of Figure 1. The top row shows, from left to right, size III, 0.25° blob, 0.5° blob, size V, 0.50 cycle/deg Gabor. The size V stimulus was not used in these experiments and is shown for reference. The second row shows the largest blob (1.11°) on the left and a 0.25 cycle/deg Gabor on the right. The third row shows the largest Gabor (0.14 cycle/deg), and the fourth shows the frequency-doubling stimulus (0.5 cycle/deg in a 5° square window). Size III (top left) and frequency-doubling (bottom) stimuli are dramatically different in size: The frequency-doubling stimulus is 5° wide, and the size III ...

PRéCIS: The C3 fields analyzer (CFA) is a moderately reliable perimeter preferred by patients to standard perimetry. While it does not approximate the gold standard, it was sensitive and specific for clinically defined glaucoma (area under the receiving operator characteristic curve=0.77 to 0.86). PURPOSE: Testing the visual field is a vital sign for diagnosing and managing glaucoma. The current gold standard, the Humphrey visual field analyzer (HFA), is large, expensive and can be uncomfortable for some patients. The current study investigated the CFA, a virtual reality head-mounted visual field testing device, as a possible subjective field test for glaucoma screening and eventually glaucoma monitoring. PATIENTS AND METHODS: The CFA presented stimuli in the same 54 positions as the HFA 24-2 SITA Standard test using a suprathreshold algorithm approximating an 18 dB deficit. A total of 157 patients (both controls and glaucoma patients) at the Aravind Eye Hospital, Pondicherry, India, were ...
A total of 120 normal eyes of 60 Japanese volunteers (31 males and 29 females) were studied. Subjects ranged in age from 23 to 75 years, mean 48.4 (SD 16.2) years. There were 10 subjects in each of six groups classified by age: between 20 and 29, 30 and 39, 40 and 49, 50 and 59, 60 and 69, and 70 and 79 years. Informed consent was obtained from each subject. The eyes studied had a best corrected visual acuity above 20/25, a refractive error between −5 and +5 dioptres of sphere or between −2 and +2 dioptres of cylinder, a normal intraocular pressure ⩽21 mm Hg, a normal appearance of the optic disc, no significant ocular disease found by routine ophthalmological examination, and reliable measurements of visual field (fixation loss ,20%, false negative and false positive ,25%) performed on the central 24-2 or 30-2 program of the Humphrey visual field analyser (Allergan-Humphrey, San Leandro, CA, USA). Results of the glaucoma hemifield test did not show outside normal limits in each eye. p ...
Method: Octopus 101 (grogramm G2) was used to determine localized BY sensitivity in a heterogeneous cohort of subjects: 25 perimetric OAG patients (glaucomatous optic disc atrophy and visual field defects in white-on-white perimetry), 52 preperimetric OAG patients (glaucomatous optic disc atrophy, no visual field defects in conventional perimetry), 52 patients with OHT, and 40 healthy control subjects. Age range: 30-70 years, AQ: 0.8-1.2, opacity lens meter in the normal range, one eye/subject. All subjects were experienced in conventional white-on-white (WW) perimetry, 35% had earlier BY perimetry. Age normalized defect-values have been calculated for all tests points using the results of an earlier multicenter study. Diagnostic value of tested areas have been judged from the area under the ROC-curve. Differences between localized white-on-white and BY results have been analyzed ...
AIM: To establish, via computer simulation, the effects of patient response variability and staircase starting level upon the accuracy and repeatability of static full threshold visual field tests. METHOD: Patient response variability, defined by the standard deviation of the frequency of seeing versus stimulus intensity curve, is varied from 0.5 to 20 dB (in steps of 0.5 dB) with staircase starting levels ranging from 30 dB below to 30 dB above the patients threshold (in steps of 10 dB). Fifty two threshold estimates are derived for each condition and the error of each estimate calculated (difference between the true threshold and the threshold estimate derived from the staircase procedure). The mean and standard deviation of the errors are then determined for each condition. The results from a simulated quadrantic defect (response variability set to typical values for a patient with glaucoma) are presented using two different algorithms. The first corresponds with that normally used when ...
Fundus automated perimetry is a technique that images the retina during visual field testing, enabling a correlation to be made between visual function and retinal structure.1. Advantages of Fundus Automated Perimetry over Standard Automated Perimetry include the possibility to measure sensitivity at specific retinal locations, higher accuracy thanks to retinal-tracking based compensation of eye movements and the simultaneous assessment of function (expressed by retinal sensitivity) and structure (images of the ONH, of the RNFL and of the retina). Fundus Automated Perimetry provides a simultaneous, quantitative assessment of fixation characteristics.. Use of Fundus Automated Perimetry in the clinical management of glaucoma has been limited so far, as available systems were lacking compliance with the standards of automated perimetry. COMPASS overcomes such limitations and brings visual field analysis to the next level!. In particular COMPASS, for the first time, extends field coverage to 30° + ...

A computer perimetry (also known as a visual field) tests the entire scope of your peripheral (side) vision.. This test is frequently used to detect any sign of glaucoma damage to the optic nerve. In addition, perimetry tests are also useful for detecting central or peripheral retinal disease, eyelid conditions such as ptosis or drooping, optic nerve disease and disease affecting the visual pathways within the brain.. The perimetry test is performed one eye at a time with the other eye completely covered to avoid errors. You will be asked to look directly ahead at all times to avoid testing the central vision rather than the peripheral vision.. On your first visit to the ophthalmologist, with signs of glaucoma, the ophthalmic technicians will perform a perimetry test collating the results for the ophthalmologist to view during your consultation. This initial test is commonly referred to as your base line test. This enables the ophthalmologist to form a starting point and then at regular ...
(HealthDay)-A simple static perimetry approach may yield higher-quality results than a combined perimetry approach in children younger than 10 years with glaucoma, according to a study published online Dec. 28 in JAMA Ophthalmology.
We report the results of a survey and consensus process to determine the three most favoured perimetry programs deemed best suited for the visual field assessment in four neurological conditions (chiasmal compression, IIH, optic neuropathy and stroke) that commonly present to eye clinics. This is the second stage of a programme of research (PoPiN) for this purpose. The first stage was a systematic review to identify patterns of visual field loss and types of perimetry programs used to assess visual fields in four common neurological conditions. The systematic review identified 20 programs which populated this survey and consensus process, with an additional 27 obtained from manufacturer perimeter manuals (Hepworth & Rowe 2018). The survey fullfied its role of narrowing perimetry programs across the four target conditions in advance of subsequent discussion of these in a consensus meeting.. Following the consensus meeting the same three programs were selected as most favoured for use in three of ...
Baseline Ophthalmic Systems provides Perimeters from industry leading manufacturers, including Zeiss and Haag Streit, among others. The Perimeters from Baseline are fully reconditioned to factory specification by manufacturer trained technicians.. About Perimetry- A patients visual acuity can be impaired by ailments such as choroidal neovascular lesions or AMD. Perimetry is used to measure a patients sensitivity to differential light within their visual field, by displaying objects to the patient and measuring their response to them. Test objects - often just small spot of light - are projected onto a hemispherical surface. In standard static perimetry, objects of varying sizes and shapes remain fixed in position (hence static) across the visual field, but change in luminosity or size via computer control. These perimeters offer up to 80 degrees of measurement range across the hemisphere. The patients sensitivity threshold can be mapped as a traditional chart, a 3D or grayscale image, or a ...

Microperimetry is an increasingly often used method of assessing the sensitivity of the central macula, analyzing fixation capabilities and loci, and accurately combining structural and functional information, even in the absence of stable fixation. Ongoing gene therapy trials have targeted the central retina, and utilized microperimetry as a main outcome measure for changes in retinal function. In retinal treatment planning, microperimetry has been used to assess the potential therapeutic window of opportunity. In the following pages, we briefly review the necessary steps to perform the Macular Integrity Assessment (MAIA) microperimetry.
Probability plots can be constructed for each of the probability distributions in Table 30.37. Estimates of two distribution parameters (location and scale or scale and shape) are computed by maximum likelihood or by least squares fitted to points on the probability plot. If one of the parameters is specified as fixed, the other is estimated. In addition, you can specify a fixed threshold, or shift, parameter for those distributions for which a threshold parameter is indicated in Table 30.37. If you do not specify a threshold parameter, the threshold is set to 0. Note that you should not interpret the parameters ...

Upon investigating -the effects of monocular visual field loss in glaucoma patients, a team of Chinese researchers found that the binocular visual field remains relatively intact as long as one eye is at normal or early stage.. This observational, cross-sectional study evaluated 250 glaucoma patients and 31 healthy patients who were assigned to groups according to the stage of monocular visual field loss they were experiencing: normal, early, moderate or severe. The researchers assessed the binocular visual fields via integrated visual field and Esterman binocular visual evaluations and compared monocular and binocular visual field parameters within and among groups. In patients with one eye at normal or early stage and the other at severe stage, the team found that the average integrated mean deviations were -1.67dB and -3.27dB, respectively, and the average Esterman scores were 99.17% and 96.08%, respectively. In patients with both eyes at moderate or severe stage, they notes that the average ...

Exercise reduces intraocular pressure (IOP) in the short term. However, it is not known whether exercise contributes to slower glaucomatous visual field defect progression. Twenty-four primary open-angle glaucoma or exfoliation glaucoma patients who were evaluated by the Humphrey Field Analyzer (HFA) 24-2 program ≥ four times in 3 years were enrolled. Patients with a history of intraocular surgery in past 3 years or other eye diseases threatening visual fields were excluded. Patients were classified into two groups whether they had exercise habits or not. Eleven patients had exercise habits. The mean ± standard error of IOP and MD slope were 14.8 ± 0.9 mmHg and +0.20 ± 0.20 dB/year in the exercise group and 13.3 ± 0.8 mmHg and −0.53 ± 0.18 dB/year in the non-exercise group (P = 0.24 and P = 0.01, respectively). Higher IOP [odds ratio (OR) = 0.44/1 mmHg increase; P = 0.02] and habitual exercise (OR = 0.04; P = 0.02) reduced the visual field defect progression risk in logistic regression analyses

If you have glaucoma, and some loss of visual field is present, you will be followed carefully with repeated testing to determine if the problem has been halted or if further loss is occurring. With further loss of visual field, you often will require additional treatment. The time interval between visual field tests depends on many different factors, and is best determined by your ophthalmologist. This ongoing and repeated testing is very important for the proper management of your glaucoma. In a healthy eye, the central portion of the visual field corresponds to the area of best vision. On the left, the numbers tell how bright the test lights had to be in order to be detected. Higher numbers indicate better vision. On the right, the visual field map shows the lightest areas (best vision) are in the center, with some reduction in sensitivity in the periphery, even in the normal field. The darkest area corresponds to the normal blind spot. The glaucoma eye shown here required more light than ...
Many eye and brain disorders can cause peripheral vision loss and other visual field abnormalities. Visual field tests are performed by eye care professionals to detect blind spots (scotomas) and other visual field defects, which can be an early sign of these problems.. The size and shape of a scotoma offer important clues about the presence and severity of diseases of the eye, optic nerve and visual structures in the brain. For example, optic nerve damage caused by glaucoma creates a very specific visual field defect.. Other conditions associated with blind spots and other visual field defects include diseases of the retina, optic neuropathy, brain tumors and stroke.. ...

The average human visual field extends 60 degrees nasally, 90 to 100 degrees laterally and 150 degrees vertically around the central point of vision. The visual fields overlap by approximately 120 degrees, giving stereopsis (depth perception). Visual acuity is sharpest centrally, where the photoreceptors on the retina are closer together, with image resolution and colour perception being reduced in the peripheral visual field.. Visual field problems can be a sign of underlying ophthalmic or neurological disease. Because the retinal ganglion cells travel in a precise anatomical location from the retina to the lateral geniculate nucleus, and the relative positions of the axons are preserved in the optic radiations from this nucleus to the occipital cortex, it is possible to localise abnormalities based on assessment of the visual field (Figure 1)..

Reading is one skill in particular that visual field loss can impact on in a variety of ways, depending on the location and size of the visual field loss. For those reading English (and other languages read from left to right) it may be difficult to locate the next word on the same line if you have a right-sided visual field loss, and it can be difficult to locate the start of the next line if you have a left-sided visual field loss. When the field loss includes an area of the central field called the macular region there is often a corresponding loss of visual acuity and reading small text becomes more difficult.. The evidence for improvements in reading ability after vision rehabilitation is variable but suggests positive outcomes that depend on the specific training program, and on the specific area of the visual field loss. For those interested in therapy options for patients who have difficulty reading as a result of visual field loss you may wish to visit University College Londons ...

FRIDAY, Feb. 16, 2018 (HealthDay News) -- Patients of African descent with glaucoma have increased visual field variability compared to those of European descent, likely contributing to delayed detection of progression, according to a study published online Feb. 15 in JAMA Ophthalmology.. Carolina P.B. Gracitelli, M.D., Ph.D., from the University of California, San Diego, in La Jolla, and colleagues examined racial differences in longitudinal visual field variability in a multicenter prospective observational cohort study. Data were included for 236 eyes of 173 individuals of European descent and 235 eyes of 171 individuals of African descent. Participants were followed for a mean of 7.5 years.. The researchers found that the eyes of individuals of African descent had a larger mean standard deviation of the residuals than eyes of individuals of European descent (1.45 versus 1.12 dB). A larger increase in variability with worsening disease was seen in the eyes of individuals of African descent. ...
One of the factors proposed to regulate the eye growth is the error signal derived from the defocus in the retina and actually, this might arise from defocus not only in the fovea but the whole visual field. Therefore, myopia could be better predicted by spatio-temporally mapping the environmental defocus over the visual field. At present, no devices are available that could provide this information. A Kinect sensor v1 camera (Microsoft Corp.) and a portable eye tracker were used for developing a system for quantifying indoor defocus error signals across the central 58° of the visual field. Dioptric differences relative to the fovea (assumed to be in focus) were recorded over the visual field and defocus maps were generated for various scenes and tasks.. © 2017 Optical Society of America under the terms of the OSA Open Access Publishing Agreement.

Discussion and Literature Review Case 1 demonstrated an important principle about smaller disks requiring a more thorough assessment. The patient had a seemingly normal neuroretinal rim area and CDR, however was experiencing glaucomatous visual field loss. Case 2 on the other hand had a larger disk, with an elevated CDR. However this was diagnosed as physiological cupping. This was confirmed by the normal visual field results. There are many techniques for clinically measuring disc size. Drance and Gross describe operating the 5 degree light spot of a direct ophthalmoscope which is 1.5 mm when projected over the disc. To determine which size of light spot is appropriate, one may stand 1m from the wall and the spot will have a diameter of 85 - 95 mm. When this spot size is projected over the optic nerve, if the disc fits on that target, the disc is normal. If the disc is smaller than that target, the disc is small. And if the disc is larger than the target, it is a large disc [2]. This technique ...

The recent study by Devine & Rutherford (2014), Magma storage region processes of the Soufrière Hills Volcano, Montserrat, published as Chapter 19 of the Geological Society of London Memoir, Volume 39, focused primarily on updating the record of magmatic temperatures recorded by Fe-Ti oxides in the andesite erupted from Soufrière Hills Volcano. However, a key result of the paper was that the compositions of some plagioclase-hosted melt inclusions indicate mixing of mafic magma components into the host andesite and trapping of the mixed melts within phenocrysts. This interpretation is consistent with our earlier work on the chemistry of melt inclusions (Humphreys et al. 2010) and of microlite crystal populations (Humphreys et al. 2009a, 2013). Humphreys et al. (2010) proposed this interpretation by showing that a subset of Soufrière Hills melt inclusions and matrix glasses has anomalous concentrations of K2O and/or TiO2, as have mafic inclusion matrix glasses (see Humphreys et al. 2010, fig. ...

Suppose a mutual fund qualifies as having moderate risk if the standard deviation of its monthly rate of return is less than 6%. A mutual-fund rating agency randomly selects 28 months and determines the rate of return for a certain fund. The standard deviation of the rate of return is computed to be 5.23%. Is there sufficient evidence to conclude that the fund has moderate risk at the α=0.05 level of significance? A normal probability plot indicates that the monthly rates of return are normally distributed ...

(
  • The nature of such blind spots (shape, size, depth) can point towards different disorders of eye, optic nerve or visual pathway in the brain. (
  • In addition, visual field tests are useful for detection of central or peripheral retinal disease, eyelid conditions such as ptosis or drooping of the eyelid, optic nerve disease, and diseases affecting thePerimeter. (
  • For example, the optic nerve damage caused by glaucoma results in a specific visual field defect. (
  • Results of the test support the diagnosis of glaucoma if it correlates with other parts of the eye examination (e.g. eye pressure check, optic disc evaluation, etc.) that also point to glaucoma. (
  • Different parts of the nervous system and brain control different parts of your visual field, and so certain patterns of vision loss can point to regions along the vision pathway-from retina to optic nerves to cortex of the brain-where there may be a problem such as structural damage. (
  • Also, a visual field test may detect central or peripheral retinal disease, some eyelid conditions including ptosis (drooping eyelid),   optic nerve disease, and diseases affecting the visual pathways within the brain. (
  • The typical visual field defect of an optic neuritis is a central scotoma, but it can also be arcuate, altitudinal, hemianopic, or cecocentral. (
  • Visual field is an important measure of the extent of damage to your optic nerve. (
  • The optic nerve collects all of the visual information from the retina of the eye and transmits that information to the brain, where the signals are interpreted as vision. (
  • Unfortunately, the visual field loss in glaucoma represents permanent damage to the optic nerve and is therefore irreversible. (
  • These patients are called 'glaucoma suspects' and must be monitored closely for subtle changes in their visual field or in their optic nerve. (
  • The intracranial course of the anterior visual pathway includes the optic nerves which pass medially from the optic canals to form the optic chiasm and are supplied by branches of blood vessels from the ophthalmic artery and pial vessels from adjacent branches of the internal carotid artery [ 16 - 19 ].

  • Development and Comparison of Machine Learning Algorithms to Determine Visual Field Progression. (
  • In glaucoma consultations, our team had the impression that many patients presented a presumed progression of the visual field (VF) scotoma despite the apparent stability of their disease. (
  • The current study has analysed a cluster of VF tests performed with a face mask showing progression despite glaucoma stability, suggesting a mask-related false progression. (
  • VF tests 1 were suspected of progression when at least three new adjacent locations exhibited significant deterioration in the glaucoma progression analysis (GPA) event-based analysis or, if not present, when at least three new adjacent locations exhibited a sensitivity lower than 95% considered normal for an age-adjusted population in the pattern deviation probability plot compared with the last pre-COVID scotoma (pre-COVID VF). (
  • Discriminating a change representing development or progression of retinopathy rather than test variability has been difficult. (
  • In patients with glaucoma, frequent visual field testing may be associated with earlier detection of the condition's progression, according to a report published Online First by Archives of Ophthalmology, one of the JAMA/Archives journals. (
  • According to background information in the article, visual field testing is one of the main ways of monitoring patients with glaucoma for progression. (
  • Estimating rates of progression can help identify patients who are progressing at a faster pace and are therefore at serious risk of developing visual disability during their lifetime," write the authors. (
  • In summary, we found that a twice-yearly schedule of visual field testing resulted in earlier detection of glaucoma progression compared with a yearly schedule, especially with global trend analyses," write the authors. (
  • Published recommendations suggest three visual field (VF) tests per year are required to identify rapid progression in a newly diagnosed glaucomatous patient over 2 years. (
  • This report aims to determine if identification of progression would be improved by clustering tests at the beginning and end of the 2-year period. (
  • Accurately determining visual field (VF) progression in glaucoma is important: it is central to effective clinical management of the disease, and it is the relevant functional endpoint for clinical trials of new treatments. (
  • Appropriate analysis to measure VF progression then requires a sound comprehension of the amount or rate of VF loss (decibels [dB] per year), the period of observation, the effect of VF measurement variability, and the number of follow-up tests required to detect change with adequate statistical power. (
  • To provide novel display modalities of visual field loss progression over time as a function of Amsler grid contrast for threshold Amsler grid tests when performing subsequent repeat exams of subjects. (
  • Visual field testing is usually performed every 6 to 12 months to monitor for glaucoma progression. (
  • More frequent visual field tests often are performed to monitor the progression of glaucoma. (
  • Software has been developed to help your doctor analyze these tests as well as monitor progression of visual field loss over successive tests. (
  • Nevertheless, these tests can help physicians and patients monitor potential progression of the disease. (
  • The gold standard in glaucoma care has been visual field testing, while optical coherence tomography has shown to play a significant role in enabling clinicians to identify changes in progression that could impact disease management. (
  • Glaucomatous progression is almost 10 times faster than the normal rate of decay of visual function with age. (
  • We are most concerned with progression in the order of 1.5-2dB per year Common RoP (0.6 dB/year) in a clinical population with glaucoma Mean RoP for normal visual decay (0.07 dB/year) Mean RoP (1.1 dB/year) in untreated glaucoma Heijl et al. (
  • Several parameters including reliability indices, test duration, VF index (VFI), mean defect (MD) and pattern deviation probability plots were compared among last pre-COVID VFs, VF tests 1 and VF tests 2, using the Wilcoxon signed-rank test. (
  • Your responses help determine if you have a defect in your visual field. (
  • In fact, the location of the stroke or tumor in the brain can frequently be determined by the size, shape and site of the visual field defect. (
  • The blind spot of the channel for the nerves was already resolved at ca. 17 degree left handside as well as a small makular defect close to the visual center part. (
  • Toxicity from certain medications may also affect the retina and result in a visual field defect. (
  • For example, increasing congruity (similarity between both eyes) generally indicates a defect that is located in higher cortical areas of the brain,   and a loss of function in the lower visual field can point to problems with fibers of the upper retina or nerve head. (
  • The primary endpoint of this study is the non-inferiority estimation quality of participant's mean defect (MD) measured in decibel (dB) between the head-mounted display and an OCTOPUS perimeter using the dynamic strategy (DS) for participants with normal or glaucomatous visual field. (

  • Results: The data from the AION patients resembled the data from glaucoma patients previously tested and were described by the linear model. (
  • Patients are asked to sit facing the testing instrument and look straight-ahead at a fixed spot. (
  • Visual field testing is an important part of any eye examination, as it can help to determine your patients' peripheral vision capabilities. (
  • Many patients may not fully understand the advantages of undergoing a perimeter test. (
  • Visual field testing is used to diagnose and monitor patients with glaucoma, intracranial tumors, and other causes of raised intracranial pressures, and neurological diseases affecting the visual pathways including strokes and pituitary lesions. (

  • Eye Doctors & Optometrists at Chan Optometry offers Visual Field Services and other Optometry Services across Markham , Richmond Hill , Vaughan , Stouffville , Aurora , Newmarket , North York , and Scarborough . (
  • Hasinger, Gerhard and Fliessbach, Andreas (2016) The Spade Test - Visual Soil Assessment in the Field. (
  • Within the project FertilCrop, visual soil assessment and other hands-on techniques are compared to analytical soil tests. (
  • Your ophthalmologist would not order a field if he doubts the result. (
  • If you are tired or ill, you should ask your ophthalmologist if the test should be postponed. (
  • If you do not look around, your ophthalmologist can more accurately determine from the visual field where damage has occurred. (
  • What Does The Visual Field Test Tell Your Ophthalmologist? (
  • When your ophthalmologist looks at the map of your visual field, they are looking for areas that are less sensitive to light than what is found in a healthy eye (Figure 4). (
  • Purpose: To develop a visual field (VF) feature model to predict the reversal of glaucoma hemifield test (GHT) results to within normal limits (WNL) after 2 consecutive outside normal limits (ONL) results. (
  • The new MRF Visual Field Tablet is meticulously designed and calibrated to deliver consistent results. (
  • Point-by-point comparison between the results obtained with the different modalities indicates: (1) minimal systematic differences between measurements taken in visual grasp and manual modes, (2) the average standard deviation of the difference distributions of about 5 dB, and (3) a systematic shift (of 4-6 dB) to lower sensitivities for VirtualEye device, observed mostly in high dB range. (
  • Does Lowering Eye Pressure Affect the Results Obtained From Objective Visual Field Testing? (
  • The purpose of this study is to evaluate the suitable visual field (VF) test conditions (target size, test type, and eccentricity) for the macular region, we investigated the correlations between the ganglion cell layer (GCL) thickness and 6 VF test results. (
  • VFs can exhibit extensive measurement error and it is widely accepted that clinical management decisions made on results from one or two tests will as a rule be unsound. (
  • Although the results for movement effects on cognitive load in this experiment were not statistically significant, men spent less time on the cognitive test in the peripheral movement condition than in the conditions without peripheral movement. (
  • The DVLA banned over 600 motorists from driving following tests carried out by government appointed optometrists, but the DVLA now admits that the test results were false. (
  • Results obtained from the test are compared to what is known about visual field tests in normal eyes. (
  • There are well-known patterns in the test results that help us recognize certain types of injury or disease. (
  • This includes automated eye tracking, which can analyse pupil movement for increased reliability of test results. (
  • What's more, the machine offers blink control whereby the test is put on hold to ensure normal blinking does not affect visual performance or the results. (
  • There are well-known patterns in the test results that help Dr. Boyle recognize certain types of injury or disease. (
  • Using the results of these tests, your doctor will be able to determine if you are having trouble seeing in certain areas of your visual field, as well as possible causes for these difficulties. (
  • Your eye doctor may have you repeat the test or have additional testing depending on the results. (
  • The results of this test are largely dependent on the test taker. (
  • At the end of the lecture optometrists will have a better understanding of testing and interpreting visual field results. (
  • Alteration of a fixation or peripheral stimulus displayed on a computer-driven display allows a human subject to maintain extended visual fixation upon the resulting dynamic stimulus. (
  • The fixation is presented upon the display and the stimulus is altered to allow resensitization of the subject's retina, thereby allowing prolonged visual fixation upon the resulting dynamic target. (
  • Visual field test result normal - 3/14 fixation error. (
  • The fixation losses are related to the reliability of the test. (
  • SAP requires observers to maintain fixation whilst attending to small dim lights for the duration of the test. (
  • Participants had a baseline visual field AGIS score of 16 or less, at least three years of follow-up and at least 10 visual field examinations with a reliability score of two or less. (
  • Kinetic perimetry maps the visual field by using moving targets of varying size and brightness. (
  • Prior to 2013, the DVLA had a list of 'approved optometrists' for people to attend but since 2013, everyone who is required to have a field test by the DVLA has to go to a branch of Specsavers, dissatisfaction already discussed in IDDT Newsletters. (
  • Does the DVLA know who was tested on the faulty equipment between 2010 and 2013 when a variety of optometrists were used? (
  • During an eye test optometrists routinely examine the internal and external structures of your eye. (
  • During an eye test optometrists routinely take a photograph of the back of each of your eyes. (
  • Static white-on-white automated perimetry (SAP) is the most common form of clinical perimetry and has been used as a measure of visual function in a number of large clinical trials. (
  • This machine use varying intensities of a flickering image to analyze the visual field. (
  • During this test, lights of different colors and intensities are flashed into your eye as you peer into a large reflective globe. (
  • Health care professionals often use the oral glucose tolerance test to diagnose Acromegaly. (
  • The location of these areas can help your doctor diagnose the cause of the visual field problems. (
  • Your doctor may order further eye tests to diagnose a problem. (
  • The pattern standard deviation reports localized field depressions ignoring any overall depressions. (
  • For a confrontation visual field test , the doctor or technician sits facing the person being tested at eye level. (
  • UnitedHealthCare does not cover corneal topography for routine follow-up testing. (
