    Aim: To see if scotoma detected with frequency doubling technology (FDT) is confirmed by Humphrey field analyser (HFA) 3 years later. Methods: Subjects were first examined with the screening C-20-1 program of FDT. The visual field was examined annually for 4 years using HFA program C30-2. The...
