Computer perimetry

Computer perimetry is used to examine the field of view in order to identify its defect and boundaries.

Computer perimetry  is a precise and reliable method of examining the field of view using moving or stationary stimuli and determining the light sensitivity at each point.

The field of view is the area of space perceived by the eye in a fixed position. If there are any diseases, then there is a narrowing of the boundaries of the field of view, loss of separate sections of the field of view, the so-called "scotomas" occur in the viewed space.

The perimetry determines the location, size, and depth of the visual defect. It diagnoses the early stages of sensitivity disorders of the retina, optic nerve, and pathways.

Ophthalmologists may identify such serious diseases and disorders as:

  • glaucoma;
  • retinal detachment;
  • (inflammatory and vascular) pathology of the optic nerve;
  • retinal pathology;
  • neoplasms;
  • myopia (about myopia); and
  • pathology of the central nervous system.

Perimetry is absolutely painless; it lasts for a few minutes.

In Yasniy Vzor Children's Eye Clinics computer perimetry is conducted using specialized up-to-date equipment Zeiss/Humfrey Field Analyser/model 745i, which allows conducting a statistical assessment of examination results automatically.
