Visual field in glaucoma patients may change due to season

(January 31, 2013 - Insidermedicine)

From Oregon - Visual field sensitivity in glaucoma patients may fluctuate due to seasonal changes, according to a report published in Opthalmology. Researchers studied over 33,000 visits to the ophthalmology department among nearly 1700 adults, measuring intraocular pressure and standard automated perimetrt. Participants were divided into several groups according to the climate in their location. Results showed that perimetric mean deviation was much higher in winter than in summer. There was no such association with IOP.
