  5. 5. © Thomas RNormal thresholds• Mean threshold in disease-free fields• In a given age group• At a given location in the visual field• Mean normal values are stored in theautomated perimeter and comparedagainst patient data
  6. 6. © Thomas RComputers and ease ofinterpretationSensitivity+Simple set of rulesComputerDiagnosis
  7. 7. © Thomas RPerimeter logic (1)• Sensitivity determined at each location• Normal range developed• Normal range is arbitrary– Includes the values of 95% of thenormal population
  8. 8. © Thomas RPerimeter logic (2)• ‘Abnormal’ values include the lowest5% of those in normal individuals• Therefore, 5% of normal individualswill be labelled abnormal‘Abnormal’ is not the sameas diseased
  9. 9. © Thomas RPerimeter logic (3)• General population – 100 tested• 1% glaucoma; 99% normal• Six will have abnormal tests:• 1 glaucoma patient• 5 normal individuals
  10. 10. © Thomas RPerimeter logic (4)• Clinic population – 100 tested• 30% glaucoma; 70% normal• 33 will have abnormal tests• 30 glaucoma patients• 3 normal individuals
  11. 11. © Thomas RInterpretation is not child’s playAutomated perimeters still need interpretation
  12. 12. © Thomas RBefore interpretation …… a few principles
  13. 13. © Thomas RRely on threshold tests• First real evidence of glaucoma• Detect scotoma• Detect depression of the ‘hill’ of vision• May predict visual loss
  14. 14. © Thomas RScreening tests• Screening• Fishing• Fatigue
  15. 15. © Thomas RInterpreting decibel values isjust half the challenge …• False positives• False negatives• Fixation• Fluctuation• Strategy• Experience• Technicians• Artefacts
  16. 16. © Thomas R
  17. 17. © Thomas ROptimising patient performance• Choose the most appropriate investigation– Test pattern and strategy• Ensure the patient is comfortably positioned– Support feet, back and arms– Adjust chin rest– Cover the other eye fully• Provide careful instructions prior to the test• Support the patient during the test• Give feedback on test performanceSEAGIG. Asia Pacific Glaucoma Guidelines. 2003–2004.
  18. 18. © Thomas RA word about the grey scale• Never use the grey scale alone forinterpretation• It is useful to educate the patientand to identify false-positiveand false-negative errors

  21. 21. ‘Clover leaf’ pattern associatedwith false negatives© Thomas R
  22. 22. © Thomas RUsing the grey scale• To educate the patient• White scotomas with false positives• Clover leaf pattern with false negatives• Never interpret using the grey scale alone
  23. 23. © Thomas RQuestions• Is there a field defect?• Is it due to glaucoma?• Is the defect progressing?
  24. 24. © Thomas RIs the field abnormal?• Without obvious defects, it is difficultto make a decision based on thefirst field• Repeat examinations providedefinitive information• Never make a diagnosis based onthe visual field alone
