The method of screening for glaucomatous visual field defects proposed by Armaly was evaluated in 106 normal people and 49 people with glaucomatous defects. The method was found to have a high sensitivity and also a high specificity and with the modifications to be described, lends itself to clinical and survey screening. The method's strength and weaknesses are outlined in detail in the paper.
