    The purpose of the study was to compare the peripheral retinal sensitivity of the visual field between professional soccer players and age-gender matched non-athlete subjects. All participants underwent a complete eye evaluation. The visual field was evaluated with the achromatic program 60-4 from the Humphrey automated perimetry. The binocular visual field was created with the best location model. It was divided into 4 quadrants (left superior, right superior, left inferior, and right inferior) and compared between groups. The study group comprised 29 professional male football players and the control group comprised 26 age-matched male non-athletes. Mean age was 25.8 +/- 4.7 years in the study group and 26.3 +/- 5.1 for controls. The average of retina sensitivity in the left inferior and right inferior quadrants was higher in the study group (27.2 +/- 1.2dB and 27.0 +/- 1.4dB) as compared to controls (26.1 +/- 1.9dB and 25.5 +/- 2.1dB). (Student's t test, P=0.011 and P=0.004, respectively). In this small cohort, professional soccer players presented higher retina sensitivity in the inferior quadrants when compared to non-athletes.
