Abstract

The Fieldmaster automated perimeter's effectiveness in determining glaucomatous visual field progression was evaluated. One hundred fifty-four eyes with glaucoma (41) and ocular hypertension (113) were followed for two to four years with manual static and kinetic perimetry (Tubingen) and automated suprathreshold static perimetry (Fieldmaster). With Tubingen static testing, 11 eyes with established glaucomatous visual field loss demonstrated progressive field loss and one eye showed improvement. Ten of these 12 eyes showed progression on the Fieldmaster. Two ocular hypertensive eyes demonstrated consistent defects on the Fieldmaster over several years, but were not detected in Tubingen static perimetry. Comparison between Tubingen static testing and Fieldmaster perimetry was food except for four Fieldmaster false alarms.
