Abstract

PURPOSE: To evaluate the efficacy of flicker perimetry compared with that of static perimetry in determining central visual field losses in participants with type 2 diabetes mellitus. METHODS: Flicker and static perimetry were performed using the Medmont field analyser on 20 participants with type 2 diabetes mellitus and 24 age-matched control participants. RESULTS: Flicker, but not static, perimetry demonstrated significant reductions in thresholds in those participants who had a recent diagnosis of diabetes or who had no or only minimal diabetic retinopathy compared to the control group at eccentricities close to fixation. CONCLUSION: Flicker perimetry is recommended for the evaluation of visual field losses in participants with recent onset of diabetes and minimal diabetic retinopathy.

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.
