MOYSES, Nadia Ajub; SOUZA, Elaine Caetano de  and  OMI, Carlos Akira. Manual kinetic perimetry value to monitor advanced glaucomatous patients. Rev. bras.oftalmol. [online]. 2011, vol.70, n.1, pp.32-36. ISSN 0034-7280.

PURPOSE: To evaluate the importance of Goldmann manual kinetic perimetry (MKP) in glaucomatous patients with advanced visual field loss in automated static perimetry (ASP) with Humphrey perimeter (HP). METHODS: The MKP with Goldmann perimeter (GP) was performed in patients with advanced primary open angle glaucoma with advanced visual field defect in the ASP with HP. A qualitative analysis was realized on the visual field extension in the Goldmann perimetry of these patients. RESULTS: The results are illustrated in a qualitative way. CONCLUSION: The MKP with GP was useful to complement the evaluation of the real campimetric condition of advanced primary open angle glaucomatous patients.
