Visual Field Defects in Low-Tension Glaucoma: Comparison of Defects in Low-Tension Glaucoma and Chronic Open Angle Glaucoma

Visual Field Defects in Low-Tension Glaucoma: Comparison of Defects in Low-Tension Glaucoma and... Abstract • In a study of the visual fields of 160 eyes with low-tension glaucoma (LTG) and 154 eyes with chronic open angle glaucoma with the same degree of optic nerve change, no differences in the qualitative or quantitative characteristics were found. The field defects in those eyes with LTG in which a major hemodynamic crisis had occurred were not different from those in which no crisis had been documented. References 1.
