Glaucoma is a slowly progressive neuropathy with changes in the optic nerve, retinal neurofibrillary layer (RNFL) and visual field. Aim of this study is to present the significance of standard computerized perimetry in early detection of changes in the visual field in patients with glaucoma. The latest WHO estimates that worldwide cancer in the first place, cardiovascular disease - second and blindness is the third challenge to solve global level. The glaucoma accounts for about 9-12% of all blind people in the world, that the disease is diagnosed in about 2.5 million people each year. WHO forecasts that the percentage will rise even to 30% by 2020. The right and on time diagnosis of the glaucoma and the efficient treatment is the only mechanism in the fight against this illness. The new methods offer us a number of new opportunities for monitoring the earliest changes of the disc of the optic nerve and retinal neurofibrillary layer. Their use should be combined with the classical methods for examination of glaucoma such as standard computer parametry.
