We examined 27 glaucomatous eyes and 154 normal eyes with automated threshold perimetry. Previously suggested algorithms for detecting mild to moderate glaucomatous visual field loss, primarily by comparing the sensitivity of corresponding clusters of points above and below the horizontal meridian, yielded results remarkably consistent with those of our earlier series: 93% (25 of 27) of abnormal and 88% (135 of 154) of normal eyes were correctly identified. Excluding unreliable examinations increased specificity from 88% to 93%. Test duration was similar to results with the Field Analyzer's older, purportedly slower operating system.
