Factors predicting the rate of functional progression in early and suspected glaucoma
Investigative Ophthalmology & Visual Science, 05/11/2012
Gardiner SK et al. – A larger optic cup and/or a more damaged visual field are predictive of more rapid perimetric sensitivity loss. The structural parameters most closely correlated with current functional status may not be the parameters that are most useful for predicting the future course of a patient's disease. Maximum IOP may be a more important risk factor than mean IOP over the same time period.
