Percentage sensitivities and specificities of retinal nerve fiber layer (RNFL) thickness, frequency doubling technology (FDT) mean defect (MD) and pattern standard deviation (PSD) and pattern electroretinogram (PERG) amplitude and latency area under Receiver Operating Characteristic (ROC) curve. AUC = area under the curve; CI = confidence interval.
