Purpose: This article describes the Humphrey field analyzer (HFA) dataset from the Department of Ophthalmology at the University of Washington.

Methods: Pointwise sensitivities were extracted from HFA 24-2, stimulus III visual fields (VF). Total deviation (TD), mean TD (MTD), pattern deviation, and pattern standard deviation (PSD) were calculated. Progression analysis was performed with simple linear regression on global, regional, and pointwise values for VF series with greater than four tests spanning at least four months. VF data were extracted independently of clinical information except for patient age, gender, and laterality

Results: This dataset includes 28,943 VFs from 7248 eyes of 3871 patients. Progression was calculated for 2985 eyes from 1579 patients. Median [interquartile range] age was 64 years [54, 73], and follow-up was 2.49 years [1.11, 5.03]. Baseline MTD was −4.51 dB [−8.01, −2.65], and baseline PSD was 2.41 dB [1.7, 5.34].

Conclusion: MTD was found to decrease by −0.10 dB/yr [−0.40, 0.11] in eyes for which progression analysis was able to be performed. VFs with deep localized defects, PSD > 12 dB and MTD −15 dB to −25 dB, were plotted, visually inspected, and found to be consistent with neurologic or glaucomatous VFs from patients. For a small number of tests, extracted sensitivity values were compared to corresponding printouts and confirmed to match.

Translational Relevance: This open access pointwise VF dataset serves as a source of raw data for investigation such as VF behavior, clinical comparisons to trials, and development of new machine learning algorithms.
