This paper explores patient perception of vision loss in glaucoma and, specifically, tests the hypothesis that patients do not recognize their impairment as a black tunnel effect or as black patches in their field of view.

The paper concludes that patients with glaucoma do not perceive their vision loss as a black tunnel effect or as black patches masking their field of view. These findings are important in the context of depicting the effects of glaucomatous vision loss and raising awareness for glaucoma detection.
