Purpose To report the impact of non-penetrating deep sclerectomy (NPDS) in severe and end-stage glaucoma treatment on the central 10° visual field progression (mean deviation, four central points, foveal threshold) and assess the risk of sudden visual loss. Methods Monocenter database study. We reviewed records of 34 eyes with severe or end-stage glaucoma that underwent NPDS between 2009 and 2015, at the National Ophthalmology Center of XV-XX (Paris, France). Severe and end-stage glaucoma were defined according to the Bascom Palmer Modified Glaucoma Staging System classification. All eyes had a constricted visual field < 10° (severe injury by the Humphrey visual field automated (HVFA) 10-2). Visual fields were recorded every 6 months after the procedure. Data from the last visit was used for the statistical analysis. Results The mean follow-up duration was 29 months (range 6 to 54) and 33 (97%) eyes were followed for more than 1 year. There were no cases of postoperative sudden visual loss. The intraocular pressure (IOP) decreased from 21.9 ± 8.1 to 15.0 ± 5.4 mmHg (P < .001). Twenty-eight (82%) eyes had an IOP < 21 mmHg and 19 (56%) an IOP < 16 mmHg. The MD 10-2 remained stable (− 19.8 ±
