Abstract

The attenuation of the perimetric response arising from cataract was investigated and related to the degree of cataract quantified by glare sensitivity. Visual fields were measured with the Octopus and Dicon automated perimeters out to an eccentricity of 30 degrees. Nuclear and non-nuclear cataracts differed in their effect on the perimetric profile. Non-nuclear cataracts exhibited the same qualitative characteristics as a model developed in previous studies, whereby the overall pattern of perimetric attenuation was dependent upon target configuration. For these subjects, perimetric sensitivity was depressed to a greater extent at an eccentricity of 30 degrees compared with fixation when measured with the large projected stimuli, whereas the reverse was true when sensitivity was measured with the small LED stimuli. Conversely, nuclear cataracts depressed perimetric sensitivity to a greater extent at the fovea compared with more peripheral regions for both the large projected and small LED stimuli.

Citation countsare sourced monthly from Scopus and Web of Science® citation databases.

These databases contain citations from different subsets of available publications and different time periods and thus the citation count from each is usually different. Some works are not in either database and no count is displayed. Scopus includes citations from articles published in 1996 onwards, and Web of Science® generally from 1980 onwards.
