TITLE Use of Short Wavelength and Frequency Doubling Perimetry for Glaucoma Diagnosis and Management
ABSTRACT: Most eye care providers agree that glaucoma is difficult to diagnose with a single test. Often, analysis of results from several tests including history, visual fields, intraocular pressure, gonioscopy, pachymetry, optic nerve head assessment, and nerve fiber layer analysis must all be used to make a correct diagnosis. In fact, sometimes a patient needs to be followed for an extended period of time before a decision to treat can be made. Conversely, a patient may occasionally present for the first time with extensive vision loss that could have been prevented if treatment had been initiated years ago. The main goal of treatment for a glaucoma patient is to preserve as much of the visual field as possible for the rest of his or her life. One of the key tests that is used to achieve this goal is visual field testing, also known as perimetry. When combined with measurements of ocular pressure and corneal thickness, and anterior and posterior structural examinations, visual field measurement is an essential tool in glaucoma diagnosis and management.  Author(s): Lorne Yudcovitch, OD, MS, FAAO
