What you will learn

Visual field (VF) assessment is useful in several ophthalmic conditions, however its value is most frequently realized in the subspeciality of glaucoma, where it plays a vital role in evaluation of the functional damage. Automated perimetry is the current gold standard in glaucoma management. Although many perimeters are available, here we will deal with interpretation of VF printout of Humphrey Field Analyzer (HFA) as this is the most commonly used instrument both in clinical practice and research.We would aim to understand the anatomic basis of VF defects (VFD), language and components of VF print out, thresholding strategies, criteria and diagnostic clues, recognizing progression, pitfalls and recording errors.

By the end of this webinar, participants should be better able to:
  • Understand the contents of HFA print out
  • Identify both early and established VFD
  • Decide whether it is due to glaucoma
  • Determine progression
  • Recognize pitfalls
