Background/aims Previously, we found a strong structure-function relationship between Octopus visual field cluster sensitivity and corresponding sector retinal nerve fibre layer thickness (RNFLT) values, using normal strategy and 16 custom-made cluster-sector pairs. However, Octopus commercially offers 10 clusters, correction for diffuse defect (corrected clusters) and tendency-oriented perimetry (TOP) strategy. In the current investigation, we evaluated structure-function relationship for these conditions, respectively. Methods Twenty-four healthy, 45 ocular hypertensive and 63 glaucoma eyes underwent Octopus perimetry (normal and TOP strategies) and RNFLT measurements on the same day. Pearson's correlation between corresponding cluster defect and sector RNFLT values was investigated. Results Correlation between the corresponding cluster defect and sector RNFLT values was significant (p
