The mode of progression of visual field defects in glaucoma


, : The mode of progression of visual field defects in glaucoma. American Journal of Ophthalmology 98(4): 443-445

Eyes (42) of 42 patients with glaucoma were studied to determine the pattern of progression of their visual field defects. In 33 eyes (79%) the scotomas became denser. Enlargement occurred in 22 eyes (52%) and 21 eyes (50%) developed new scotomas. Increased density of the scotomas was the only manifestation of change in 10 eyes (24%), 3 eyes (7%) showed enlargement only, and 6 (14%) showed only new scotomas. Eyes 17, (57%) with single hemifield involvment maintained a defective single hemifield throughout the follow-up period.
