Purpose: Background: Various systemic diseases such as migraine, HIV microangiopathy , smoking, and diabetes mellitus demonstrate abnormalities in perimetric examinations. The aim of the study was to find out if arterial hypertension has an influence on the results of the white-white - and blue-yellow perimetry.

Methods: Methods: We studied 26 eyes of patients with arterial hypertension and 22 age-matched healthy controls ophthalmologically (visual acuity, refraction, intraocular pressure, mor-phological status, cup - disc ratio) as well as white - white perimetry and blue-yellow perimetry with the Octopus 311 (G1, dynamic strategy; Haag-Streit, Schlieren, Switzer-land) . The statistical analyses took part with Wilcoxon's test followed by Bonferroni Holm correction.

Results: RESULTS: 26 patients with a treated arterial hypertension (AHT) ( M: F = 8:18; Age 52.88+/-4.78 years ) were compared with a healthy control group ( n = 22 , m : w = 9:13:4 ; age 52.41+/-2.95 years ). All ophthalmological examinations as well as systolic and diastolic blood pressure of both groups were normal and did not differ. The Body Mass Index of the AHT group showed a significantly higher value (28.16 versus 24.39). No significant differences were found between the results of the achromatic perimetry and the blue-yellow perimetry Achromatic Perimetry: ( mean ± standard deviation; controls vs. AHT) MD -0.5 ± 0.89 vs -0.21 ± 1.4 , LV 3.4 ± 1.47 vs. 6.19 ± 5.27 ; Blue - yellow perimetry (mean ± standard deviation; controls vs. AHT) MD 1.08 ± 1.98 vs. 1.65 ± 2.29 , 13.72 ± 7.41 vs. 16.67 LV ± 9.68.

Conclusions: Conclusions: Arterial hypertention has no influence on the results of achromatic perimetry and blue-yellow perimetry.
