Localized decibel loss in central visual field usually suggests maculopathy. Inconsistencies between visual acuity and visual field change, between disease severity and visual field damage, or between symptoms and signs could usually be noticed, due to the complexity of the diseases in the macula. Besides, a proper visual field examination strategy is also very important for the evaluation of disease.
