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


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.


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


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