24-2 standard automated perimetry (SAP), with aid of computerized statistical softwares, is generally recommended for measuring progression in eyes with glaucomatous visual field (VF) loss.1 However, compelling evidence show that 24-2 VFs can miss damage seen on 10-2 tests.2 Despite growing interest in incorporating 10-2 tests in glaucoma practice, there is currently no commercially-available software for detecting progression with 10-2 VFs. To address this issue, herewith we describe a database based upon short-term variability of 10-2 metrics as a basis for detection of central field progression using event analysis.
We analyzed 56 patients (56 eyes) with established glaucoma and 24-2 MD >-6 dB from an ongoing prospective, longitudinal study. All participants had 10-2 VF tests (Carl Zeiss Meditec, Inc.) on the same day, which were repeated at 3±1 week intervals at least 4 times. We calculated the measures of center and dispersion of global (MD and PSD) and pointwise metrics from the 10-2 report. These measures were plotted to assess the relationship between severity and short-term variability.
The mean (±SD) of the mean of 10-2 MD and PSD values were -1.52±1.9 dB and 2.42±2.1, respectively. The figures depict the relationship between 10-2 MD severity and its variability (based upon 10th and 90th percentiles of the data and the predicted 95% CI). The same analysis was performed for each of the 68 test locations’ threshold sensitivity, total deviation, and pattern deviation values. A similar pattern of increase in variability as a function of severity was observed.
We defined global and pointwise limits of short-term variability of 10-2 VF metrics which can be used to define 10-2 progression using an event-based approach.REFERENCES1) Spry PG, Johnson CA. Surv Ophthalmol. 20022) Hood DC et al. Prog Retin Eye Res. 2013
