The authors comment in the preface that 15 years ago, when automated static perimetry came into use, it was difficult to find practical reading material to guide the user. That motivated the first edition of this book. Although others have meanwhile sought to fill that void, this second edition represents the continued intent of the authors to provide an atlas-like text that can be useful to both technical and professional staff, from the beginners to the experienced.
The preface provides a historical introduction to the authors' personal involvement in understanding the evolution and practical use of modern perimetry. The first third of the text itself introduces the fundamental concepts of automated static perimetry, the Humphrey Field Analyzer in particular, and the important practical considerations of how the test is administered. Such emphasis is important not only for perimetrists, but also for the clinicians who supervise them.
