History of visual field measurement

Atchison, David A. (1979) History of visual field measurement. Australian Journal of Optometry, 62(8), pp. 345-354.

Abstract

This paper reviews development of visual field measurement (perimetry) from ancient times to the present. Since 1850 there has been a marked awareness of the importance of visual field measurement to neuro-ophthalmological diagnosis. This has resulted in a continuous increase in the number and complexity of perimetric methods.

Citation countsare sourced monthly from Scopus and Web of Science® citation databases.

These databases contain citations from different subsets of available publications and different time periods and thus the citation count from each is usually different. Some works are not in either database and no count is displayed. Scopus includes citations from articles published in 1996 onwards, and Web of Science® generally from 1980 onwards.
