Abstract

Aim:

To evaluate the performance on automated perimetry (AP) after listening to a Mozart sonata in normal subjects naive to AP.

Methods:

60 naive normal subjects underwent AP (SITA 24-2). The study group (30 subjects) underwent AP after listening to Mozart’s Sonata for Two Pianos in D Major and the control group (30 subjects) underwent AP without previous exposure to the music.

Results:

The study group had significantly less fixation loss, false positive, and false negative rates compared to controls (p<0.05).

Conclusion:

Listening to Mozart seems to improve AP performance in normal naive subjects.
