    Aims To determine the sensitivity and specificity of the photopic negative response (PhNR) of the focal electroretinograms (ERG; focal PhNR) to detect glaucomatous eyes with different degrees of visual field defects. Methods One-hundred and fourteen eyes of 114 patients with open angle glaucoma...
