GarwayHeath: Garway-Heath angles for the HFA-II

Description Usage Format References


These Garway-Heath angles are used as the dissimilarity metric when implementing the boundary detection model for a longitudinal series of visual fields.




A vector with length 54, where each entry represents the angle (in degrees) that the underlying retinal nerve fiber enters the optic nerve head. The measure ranges from 0-360, where 0 is designated at the 9-o’clock position (right eye) and angles are counted counter clockwise. These angles are estimates for the Humphrey Field Analyzer-II (Carl Zeiss Meditec Inc., Dublin, CA). The 26th and 35th entries are missing as they correspond to a natural blind spot.
