Description

This book addresses on visual field analysis in patients of glaucoma, and also focuses on perimetry in retinal diseases and neuro-ophthalmological disorders. The book covers the entire evolution of visual field analysis: from the history of perimetry to role of frequency doubling perimetry (FDP), short wavelength automated perimetry (SWAP) and the recent advances for structural-functional correlation. Each of the sections and chapters of the book is well illustrated with ample color pictures and visual field print-outs, explaining the concepts with meticulous detail. The editors and authors must be congratulated for highlighting the clinical relevance of each visual field, and progression analysis with well-illustrated examples from clinical situations. Practical Perimetry is a collective effort of clinicians and glaucomatologists from around the globe. It is a practical primer on perimetry for general ophthalmologists, glaucoma surgeons, neuro-ophthalmologists, and trainees as well. The book is extensively illustrated with examples of real-life clinical scenarios and aims to help the clinician choose the appropriate diagnostic protocol, and achieve optimal results each time the visual field is performed, in terms of both reliability and interpretation. The book also elucidates the key points to look out for when using visual fields in the serial monitoring of patients. It is also an attempt to keep the clinician-scientist abreast of the latest developments in visual field charting, especially the novel platforms available for correlation of structure and function, and its place in the serial monitoring of both, glaucoma and neuro-ophthalmological diseases. This book will prove invaluable to postgraduate students, fellows and practising ophthalmologists in learning and refining interpretation of visual fields, and in its clinical correlation, thereby, improving the standard of care provided to our patients.
