PURPOSE: The presence of central visual field loss does not infer the extent of peripheral visual field loss. In advanced stage glaucoma, we evaluated whether automated kinetic perimetry provided additional visual field information to that of central static perimetry. MATERIALS AND METHODS: We undertook a prospective cross sectional study of advanced stage glaucoma defined as stages 3-4. Visual field assessment for right and left eyes was undertaken within one clinic visit using the Octopus 900 G programme and kinetic strategy. RESULTS: We recruited 126 patients (170 eyes). Mean patient age at assessment was 55.86 years (SD 15.15). Mean kinetic reaction time was 1503.96ms (SD 801.68). Kinetic I4e was plotted in 71% of eyes with an unadjusted area of 2513.68 degrees2 (SD 2397.91) and mean isopter radius of 23.16 degrees (SD 13.07). Kinetic I2e was plotted in 53.5% of eyes with an unadjusted area of 627.07 degrees2 (SD 1291.94) and mean isopter radius of 7.47 degrees (SD 10.59). Increased reaction time was associated with a poorer visual field (p=0.001). Mean sensitivity, mean deviation and standard loss variance values on static perimetry were higher in patients who had a defined kinetic field boundary than in patients with no kinetic response to I4e stimulus (p=0.0001). However this corresponded to only small to medium correlation between static fields and existent kinetic fields: the presence of poor static fields did not always infer a poor kinetic visual field as poor static fields could also have good kinetic visual fields. CONCLUSIONS: Although we confirmed a lack of agreement and only a small to medium correlation between the extents of central versus peripheral visual field loss, automated kinetic perimetry did provide additional peripheral (outside the static 30-degree central field) visual field information which was clinically useful in the presence of non-informative severely defected central visual fields.
