1. Effect of fundus tracking on structure-function relationship in glaucoma

    Abstract Aims: To investigate the effect of fundus tracking perimetry on structure-function relationship in glaucoma. Methods: Perimetric data were acquired with the Humphrey Field Analyzer (HFA) and the Compass fundus perimeter (CMP, equipped with fundus tracking). We included data from 696 eyes from 360 healthy people and 711 eyes from 434 patients with glaucoma from […]

  2. Biofeedback Fixation Training Method for Improving Eccentric Vision in Patients With Loss of Foveal Function Secondary to Different Maculopathies

    Abstract Purpose: Fixation stability (FS) of the preferred retinal locus (PRL) may be improved by biofeedback fixation training (BFT) with microperimetry. Such training can be done on the patient’s PRL or in different retinal loci with better functional characteristics. We studied both options and compared the outcomes. Methods: Sixty-seven consecutive patients with bilateral central vision […]

  3. Retest Reliability of Mesopic and Dark-Adapted Microperimetry in Patients With Intermediate Age-Related Macular Degeneration and Age-Matched Controls.

    Abstract Purpose: To determine the intrasession test-retest reliability of mesopic and dark-adapted fundus-controlled perimetry in patients with intermediate age-related macular degeneration (iAMD). Methods: We conducted a cross-sectional study with 23 iAMD patients (67.3 ± 8.2 years; range, 50-85; 78% female) and 24 healthy controls (61.3 ± 5.2 years; range, 50-71; 50% female) using a modified […]

  4. A comparison of relative diagnostic precision between the Compass fundus perimeter and the Humphrey Field Analyzer

    Abstract Purpose : To evaluate relative diagnostic precision of two devices, the Compass (CMP, CenterVue, Italy) fundus perimeter and the Humphrey Field Analyzer (HFA, Zeiss, Dublin), in detecting glaucomatous optic neuropathy (GON) in a large multicentre cross-sectional study, . Methods : One eye of 498 glaucoma patients and 436 age similar normals was tested with […]

  5. A comparison between the Compass fundus perimeter and the Humphrey Field Analyzer

    Abstract Purpose: To evaluate relative diagnostic precision and test–retest variability of 2 devices, the Compass (CMP, CenterVue, Padova, Italy) fundus perimeter and the Humphrey Field Analyzer (HFA, Zeiss, Dublin, CA), in detecting glaucomatous optic neuropathy (GON). Design: Multicenter, cross-sectional, case-control study. Participants: We sequentially enrolled 499 patients with glaucoma and 444 normal subjects to analyze […]

  6. Macular integrity assessment to determine the association between macular microstructure and functional parameters in diabetic macular edema

    Abstract Aim: To respectively evaluate macular morphological features and functional parameters by using spectral-domain optical coherence tomography (SD-OCT) and macular integrity assessment (MAIA) in patients with diabetic macular edema (DME). Methods: This prospective, non-controlled, open study included 61 eyes of 38 consecutive patients with DME. All patients underwent best-corrected visual acuity (BCVA) measurement, MAIA microperimetry, […]

  7. Clinical Assessment of Optic Disc Automatic HD Multicolor Stereo vs Digital Monoscopic Photographs by Glaucoma Specialists and by General Ophthalmologists

    Abstract Purpose: To compare the intraobserver and the interobserver agreement and the accuracy of classification of optic disc automatic high definition multicolor stereophotographs vs digital monoscopic photographs by glaucoma specialists and by general ophthalmologists. Methods: 1 eye from 36 consecutive healthy subjects (mean age 56.7 ± 6 years, 20 females and 16 males) and 31 […]

  8. COMPASS fundus automated perimetry

    Abstract Background: Compass (CenterVue, Padova, Italy) is a fundus automated perimeter which has been introduced in the clinical practice for glaucoma management in 2014. The aim of the article is to review Compass literature, comparing its performances against Humphrey Field Analyzer (Zeiss Humphrey Systems, Dublin, CA, USA). Results: Analyses on both normal and glaucoma subjects […]

  9. Microperimetry in age-related macular degeneration: association with macular morphology assessed by optical coherence tomography

    Abstract BACKGROUND/AIMS:Microperimetry is a technique that is increasingly used to assess visual function in age-related macular degeneration (AMD). In this study, we aimed to evaluate the relationship between retinal sensitivity measured with macular integrity assessment (MAIA) microperimetry and optical coherence tomography (OCT)-based macular morphology in AMD. METHODS:Prospective, cross-sectional study. All participants were imaged with colour […]

  10. Effective Dynamic Range and Retest Reliability of Dark-Adapted Two-Color Fundus-Controlled Perimetry in Patients With Macular Diseases

    Abstract Purpose: To determine the effective dynamic range (EDR), retest reliability, and number of discriminable steps (DS) for mesopic and dark-adapted two-color fundus-controlled perimetry (FCP) using the S-MAIA (Scotopic-Macular Integrity Assessment) “micro-perimeter.” Methods: In this prospective cross-sectional study, each of the 52 eyes of 52 subjects with various macular diseases (mean age 62.0 ± 16.9 […]
