Purpose: To report correlations between thickness of ganglion cell complex (GCC) and findings by Humphrey automated tonometer in glaucomatous eyes. Cases and Method: This study was made on 39 eyes of 39 patients with open-angle glaucoma. Thickness of GCC in the posterior fundus was measured by Fourier-domain optical coherence tomograph. Visual field was measured using SITA standard 30-2. Results: There was a significant correlation between GCC thickness and sensitivity in the corresponding retina. Correlation between GCC thickness in the inferior fundus and upper visual field was higher than that between GCC thickness in the superior fundus and lower visual field. Conclusion: A high correlation is present between GCC thickness and corresponding visual field in glaucomatous eyes.
