Rarebit perimetry and optic disk in pediatric glaucoma
S:t Eriks ögonsjukhus.
2007 (English)In: Journal of pediatric ophthalmology and strabismus, ISSN 0191-3913, E-ISSN 1938-2405, Vol. 44, no 4, p. 223-31Article in journal (Refereed) Published
Abstract [en]

Of 27 eyes in 15 children with pediatric glaucoma examined with Goldmann perimetry, 15 eyes (55%) had a normal visual field. Of 24 eyes examined with Rarebit perimetry, 8 eyes (33%) showed normal results and 16 eyes (67%) showed an abnormally low hit rate (ie, the fraction of seen targets vs presented targets). Nine of the 15 eyes showing normal Goldmann visual fields had a subnormal Rarebit hit rate. All children in the control group had normal Rarebit visual fields. Heidelberg retinal tomography could be performed in all healthy children and in 22 eyes of 13 children with pediatric glaucoma. The concordance between the Heidelberg retinal tomography classification (ie, normal or glaucoma) and the Rarebit results was high (Cohen's kappa = 0.79). A statistically significant correlation (r = 0.66, P =.006) between Rarebit hit rate and Heidelberg retinal tomography glaucoma index was found in the glaucoma group.

Conclusions: Rarebit perimetry detected glaucomatous damage in various types of pediatric glaucoma, and can be assumed to be of value in both diagnosis and follow-up. in 13 children with glaucoma, Heidelberg retinal tomography could be performed. The results conformed well to Rarebit findings.
