Abstract

According to Hodapp’s criteria for visual field (VF) scoring, advanced glaucoma can be defined as having a VF mean deviation index (MD) < -12 dB. Advanced glaucoma can also be defined on the basis of the patient’s skills to perform daily activities. Functional tests are usually more useful than structural parameters to follow-up patients with advanced glaucoma. An overview of the available investigative techniques in advanced glaucoma will be provided.
