A method to quantify different glaucomatous visual field defects is presented. Three visual field indices are calculated: the short-term fluctuation, the mean defect, and the corrected loss variation. The method was applied to visual fields tested with program JO on the Octopus automated perimeter. The indices of 130 glaucoma suspects and 50 glaucoma patients were compared with 100 normal controls. The indices provide good detectability of visual field defects and easy follow-up.
