Comparisons between automated suprathreshold static perimetry and manual kinetic perimetry were performed for 226 eyes with glaucoma or ocular hypertension, and 147 eyes with other optic nerve disease. Both techniques produced similar high detection rates for glaucomatous visual field defects, whereas suprathreshold static perimetry performed significantly better than kinetic testing in optic nerve disease other than glaucoma. It is concluded that automated suprathreshold static perimetry is an excellent quantitative screening technique for detecting visual field defects.
