The mode of progression of visual field defects in glaucoma






American Journal of Ophthalmology 98(4): 443-445

The mode of progression of visual field defects in glaucoma

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.
