Abstract

Between August 1976 and September 1982, more than 34,000 manual and automated visual fields have been analyzed in the Department of Ophthalmology, University of California, Davis. Approximately 27% of these tests consisted of manual kinetic visual fields performed on the Goldmann perimeter, while 73% were conducted using automated perimetry. Automated testing alone, or a combination of automated perimetry and manual kinetic testing (Goldmann perimeter) was usually employed to monitor progression of regression of visual field loss. This paper provides an overview of two aspects of automated suprathreshold static perimetry that have not been emphasized in our previous studies: (1) methodologic difficulties and problem patients in automated suprathreshold static perimetry, and (2) examples of automated suprathreshold static perimetry in neuro-ophthalmologic patient populations.
