    Purpose: To compare Primary Open Angle Glaucoma (POAG), Ocular Hypertension (OHT) and control groups by using Visual Field (VF) and Spectral Domain Optical Coherence Tomography (SD-OCT) and to investigate correlations between VF global indices and Retinal Nerve Fiber Layer (RNFL) thickness measurements. Methods: Forty patients with POAG, 55 patients with OHT, and 40 normal subjects were included in the study. All subjects were evaluated by standard automated perimetry and Cirrus HD-OCT. Results: RNFL global average thickness, average thicknesses in four quadrants and at 1 o’clock, 4 o’clock, 5 o’clock, 6 o’clock, 7 o’clock, 10 o’clock, 11 o’clock and 12 o’clock areas in POAG patients were significantly decreased compared with the OHT and the control groups.
