Visual Field Loss Impacts Vision-Specific Quality of Life by Race, Ethnicity: The Multiethnic Ophthalmology Cohorts of California Study

Visual field loss affected person-reported vision-specific quality of life differently in different racial and ethnic groups. Driving was more affected among participants 65 years and older.

Impact of Visual Field Loss on Vision-Specific Quality of Life in African Americans: The African American Eye Disease Study

African Americans endure a disproportionate burden of visual impairment. Vision quality of life was characterized by daily tasks and emotional well-being. Field loss had the greatest impact on completing daily visual tasks. A meaningful change in visual task was associated with 6 dB lower visual field. Preventing visual field loss is important for preserving vision quality of life.

Repeatability of Peripapillary Vessel Parameters by Optical Coherence Tomography Angiography

Optical Coherence Tomography Angiography (OCTA) is a novel method of measuring blood flow through the retina of the eye. FDA approval was obtained for OCTA in 2015. The reliability, reproducibility, and repeatability of OCTA have not been characterized in patients with glaucoma and normal eyes. OCTA parameters were highly repeatable during the same visit.
