Measuring Rates of Visual Field Progression in Linear Versus Nonlinear Scales: Implications for Understanding the Relationship Between Baseline Damage and Target Rates of Glaucoma Progression. J Glaucoma. 2017;26:721-725 pubmed publisher..The definition of fast versus slow visual field progression should be revised and take into account that sensitivity in linear scales show a better correlation with structural loss than when conventionally measured in nonlinear scale. ..
