The purpose of this study is to investigate the possibility of using the computerized perimetry in glaucomatous patients with VA less than 20/400.
Thirty three eyes of 33 patients (21 with VA = CF and 12 with VA = HM), underwent automated perimetry (Humphrey 24-2 program), initially with stimulus III and after with stimulus V.
Twelve patients were not able to complete neither examinations (all of them with VA = HHM). Nineteen patients were able to complete both examinations, while two patients were able to complete only the examination with stimulus V. Among the nineteen patients that carried out both examinations, fifteen (68,4%) felt themselves more confortable during the examination with stimulus V.
We conclude that computerized perimetry is possible in glaucomatous patients with advanced visual field defects and VA less than 20/400.
