Abstract

This article presents one of the alternative methods developed for the early detection of ocular glaucoma based on the characterisation of mfERG (multifocal electroretinography) readings. The digital signal processing technique is based on Wavelets, hitherto unused in this field, for detection of advanced-stage glaucoma and the study of signal morphology by means of identity patterns for detection of glaucoma in earlier stages. Future research possibilities are also mentioned, such as the study of orientation in the development of the disease.
