Evolving Technologies in Visual Field Testing: A Leap Towards Precision
This article discusses the evolution of visual field-testing technologies, particularly focusing on the advancements in diagnosing and managing optic neuropathies.
- The article emphasizes the importance of choosing the right visual field techniques and devices in an era where technology is rapidly evolving.
- It introduces new algorithms within the Humphrey Visual Field Analyzer that reduce patient chair time, clinical footprint, and technician load while maintaining reliable results.
- The article discusses the benefits of Virtual Reality Perimetry (VRP) over standard automated perimetry (SAP) machines.
- It also highlights the Humphrey 24-2C strategy, which combines the benefits of 24-2 and 10-2 tests, making it more useful for early glaucoma and optic neuropathy.
According to a study published in Ophthalmology, glaucoma affects more than 60 million people worldwide and is the second leading cause of blindness globally.
