Evaluating the Accuracy of the Visual Field Index for the Humphrey Visual Field Analyzer in Patients with Mild to Moderate Glaucoma – Corrected Proof

Purpose: To evaluate the accuracy of the visual field index (VFI) for the Humphrey Visual Field Analyzer in a population of patients with mild to moderate glaucoma.Design: Retrospective cohort study.Methods: The study included 42 patients (61 eyes) with at least 11 years of follow-up, and annual automated visual fields (VFs). Patients with mean deviations ≤−20 dB were excluded. All unreliable fields were omitted (fixation losses ≥20%, false-positive ≥15%, false-negative ≥33%). The VFs were divided into two 5-year series and the data were analyzed by the new Humphrey Visual Field Analyzer software. Projected VFIs from the first 5 years were compared (Read more...)
