Defining 10-2 Visual Field Progression Criteria: Exploratory and Confirmatory Factor Analysis Using Pointwise Linear Regression – Corrected Proof

Purpose: To test different visual field progression criteria using trend analysis in a glaucoma population followed with long sequences of 10-2 tests as a first attempt to understand and document rates of progression in the central field.Design: Retrospective cohort study.Participants: We included 146 eyes of 146 patients with established glaucoma.Methods: Pointwise linear regression analysis using the methods of ordinary least squares was performed on the 68 test locations of the 10-2 visual field sequences. Threshold sensitivities at each test location were plotted as the dependent variable against follow-up time as the independent variable. Statistically significant progression or improvement of a (Read more...)
