Automated perimetry is an exciting, rapidly evolving field, which is widely used clinically and contributes significantly to the ophthalmic diagnostic tools currently available. Computed visual field analysis is considered more sensitive than manual perimetry, and it assists the clinician in collecting data in a more objective and unbiased way then before. Although much progress has already been made, some problems still remain unresolved, such as test inconsistencies, long-term fluctuations, determination of clear criteria for early visual field defects, and progression of visual field loss, to name only a few.
The International Perimetric Society is a well-recognized forum in which these and other problems are thoroughly discussed by authorities in the field. The proceedings of the Sixth International Perimetric Society Symposium held May 27 to 31,1984, in Santa Margherita Ligure, Italy, reflect the abundance of information gathered and the pace of progress made in recent years.
