TitleBest Approach to Diagnosing Early Glaucoma
PurposeHow to detect early glaucoma, from technical possibilities to clinical relevance.
MethodsPresentation of selected clinical cases and recent literature to illustrate the contribution of functional and structural measurements to detect early glaucoma
ResultsInformation obtained by OCT (structure) and automated visual field testing (function) is not redundant but complementary.
ConclusionBoth OCT imaging and automated visual field testing are needed to detect early glaucoma. However, the clinical implications of the diagnosis of early glaucoma will depend on the patient’s profile and to a certain extent on the testing strategy that generated the diagnosis.
