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 correct and timely diagnosis of glaucoma is the only mechanism to combat this insidious disease. Newer imaging methods provide many new opportunities for the detection of the earliest changes in the optic disc and RNFL. Their use however must be always in combination with conventional test methods such as standard computerized perimetry.
