    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...

    Purpose: To assess the results of perimetry recorded under dark- and light-adapted (DA and LA) conditions in patients with acute zonal occult outer retinopathy (AZOOR) and to compare the results of electroretinography (ERG) and spectral-domain optical coherence tomography (SD-OCT) in two groups...
