[automatically translated] Objective: To evaluate the visual field in patients with GCAA type A than type B Materials and Methods: We studied 50 patients with GCAA no significant differences in duration of the disease, of whom 30 women and 20 men, belonging to ' surgery for Glaucoma Institute of Ophthalmology of the University of Palermo. They included only patients with localized lesions of the visual field according to the staging of the damage perimeter of the Glaucoma Staging System 2 (GSS2). The average age was 63.42 ± 9.12 with no significant differences between the sexes. Patients were subjected to: 1. Review Complete biomicroscopic 2. tonometry and Curve daytime tonometric 3. visual field examination by computerized perimeter "Octopus 1-2-3" and its assessment by Glaucoma Staging System 2 (GSS2) 4. Scale Hamilton Anxiety Rating Scale (HARS) to evaluate the presence of anxiety and its level; 5. Questionnaire personality type A / B (Modified Jenkins Activity Survey) Version 6. Test STAY 7. Brief cope test results 64% of the subjects (17 women and 13 men) have a behavior attributable to the type A. The IOP: in subjects of type a was equal to 2:57 ± 20.2 (range 16-27) and in those with type B equal to 20.4 ± 1.59 (range 18-25). The visual field study highlighted an impairment to GSS2, statistically significant (p = 0.001), in subjects of type A (2.65 ± 0.83) compared to those of type B (1.55 ± 0.97). The subjects with staging ≥ 2 have a higher stretch level of anxiety without differences between the two sexes and is higher in females, albeit not statistically significant, when it is ≤ 2. Comparing the impairment of the visual field with the scale-Brief cope, has a statistically significant negative correlation (p = 0.024). Examination with GDx VCC, the values of TSNIT, despite being within the normal range (45.6 - 66.8), they are statistically higher (p> 0.001) in subjects of type B; these, in fact, have the mean value of 59 versus that of 53 detected in subjects of type A. The NFI index, instead, was statistically greater in the type A subjects (p = 0.01);
