Advancing clinical efficiency for glaucoma

New SITA Faster 24-2C Test

  • More information in the central 10 degrees where macular visual field defects reside.
  • The 24-2C test pattern combines all 24-2 points plus ten selected points from the 10-2 pattern that cover areas known to be susceptible to glaucomatous defects both from structural and functional studies (1-6)
  • SITATM Faster 24-2C test takes ~20% less time than SITA Fast 24-2 test
