Purpose : To compare the variability of visual field (VF) results obtained using Compass fundus perimeter (CMP, Centervue, Italy) and Humphrey Field Analyzer (HFA, Zeiss, Germany).

Methods : Thanks to a retinal tracking system, CMP actively compensates for eye movements during VF testing by displacing the stimuli according to the position of fixation at any given time. 9 patients with moderate-advanced glaucoma (Mean Sensitivity of 13.57±6.95 dB) and 7 normal subjects underwent test-retest with both CMP and HFA on one eye (randomly chosen). ZEST 24° was used for CMP, and SITA Standard 24° for HFA. Tests that were not reliable were excluded. Mean Sensitivity Difference (MSD) and Mean Absolute Difference (MAD) between test and retest were compared between CMP and HFA.

Results : In glaucoma, MSD was -0.10±1.05 dB for CMP and -0.59±1.55 dB for HFA (P=0.36); MAD was 2.37±0.74 dB for CMP and 3.34±1.10 dB for HFA (P=0.20). In normal subjects, MSD was 0.05±0.50 dB for Compass and 0.24±0.43 dB for HFA; MAD was 1.50±0.32 dB for Compass and 1.45±0.35 dB for HFA. Average test duration for the group of subjects with glaucoma was comparable for the two devices (6:47 CMP; 7:00 HFA).

Conclusions : Test-retest variability for glaucoma patients seems to be lower with Compass than with the HFA, with a reduction of 30% in MAD. Sample size will be expanded, and additional data will be collected to assess variability in the full range of VF sensitivities.
