Abstract

Recent studies indicate that automated perimetry can serve as an effective method of screening for visual field abnormalities associated with ophthalmologic and neurologic disorders. The techniques have been successfully applied to the private practitioner's office for screening of patients and to mass visual field screening of the general population. This paper describes the principles underlying automated perimetric screening, evaluates the capabilities and limitations of such techniques, and provides some general guidelines for using automated perimetric screening procedures.
