Abstract [en]

PURPOSE: To evaluate the influence of visual field (VF) examinations using modern techniques with short examination times on the intraocular pressure (IOP). METHODS: Sixty-one consecutive patients, aged 28-90 years, 40 women and 21 men, were examined. Forty patients were treated for glaucoma and 21 were untreated patients with ocular hypertension or suspected glaucoma. Twenty-one subjects were examined using the Humphrey Field Analyzer, using SITA programs, and 40 with high-pass resolution perimetry (HRP). Goldmann applanation tonometry was performed immediately before and after the VF examinations. RESULTS: A difference in IOP of more than 2 mm Hg before and after the VF examination was observed in 14 of the 61 patients (23%). The maximum change in each direction was 4 mm Hg. The mean differences were not significant. All eight subjects with increasing IOP after VF examinations were examined using the HRP technique (P=0.04). CONCLUSION: Modern VF techniques with short examination time do not seem to significantly influence IOP.
