A person’s visual field is the entire area they can see when looking at one fixed position. To test a patient’s eyesight and pinpoint vision issues, a visual field test is conducted using various techniques
In ophthalmology, perimetry is one such technique, and is used to detect, diagnose, and monitor a range of retinal, optic nerve, brain, and other various eye conditions and disorders, as well as scotomas, or blind spots. Furthermore, it can be used to identify peripheral vision loss, as this can be an early sign of glaucoma.
For this reason, perimetry and visual field testing make up for the limitations that visual acuity testing presents.
Detection, diagnosis, and monitoring are all accomplished using an automated perimeter, which employs perimetry to obtain results.
A perimeter works by projecting stimuli of different sizes and densities at different locations throughout a patient’s visual field, and may even flicker the images. The patient’s response to different stimuli size and density, as well as motion and flicker, is then recorded and measured, and the test results can then help an optometrist or ophthalmologist make an accurate diagnosis regarding their ocular health.
Although tests can be conducted manually, automated perimetry is fast becoming the preferred method for visual testing. Automation can correct human errors and bias, standardizing both stimuli presentation and data recording, and providing more accurate and reproducible results.
Furthermore, automated perimetry is utilized in clinical applications because of its ability to provide an early diagnosis of specific eye conditions. Data collected through perimetry has helped determine associations between patterns of loss of visual sensitivity in specific areas of the eye and eye diseases such as glaucoma.
Proper early glaucoma diagnosis using visual field tests can lead to important treatment of the disease before serious effects have taken place. Or, at the very least, they can monitor its progression and provide insight into helpful treatment programs.
Having advanced, adaptive, and well-made perimetry equipment in your practice or laboratory is essential to providing patients with an optimal experience.
Types of Perimetry, Perimeters, & Their Benefits
With developments in automation, computerized testing has become more common. Automated perimeters employ varying types or modes of perimetry testing strategies and algorithms to conduct tests and obtain results. We’ll review some of the types of perimetry used in ophthalmology, along with some of the common perimeter types.

Visual field defects can have a huge impact on a patient’s life, and can be an indicator of a potential eye disease or condition.
Because automated perimetry equipment can accurately and reliably identify many of the abnormalities that are associated with eye disease, it is a key part of ophthalmic pathology and any busy clinic.
Having an automated perimeter on hand provides a wide range of benefits that include improved efficiency and accurate, reproducible results. However, investing in the acquisition of one of these devices can be difficult due to high costs.
That said, it is an essential part of ophthalmology and and shouldn’t be skipped simply because acquiring one outright proves financially difficult for your company.
It’s exactly why Excedr offers a comprehensive leasing program for ophthalmic equipment and instrumentation. With our program, you can bypass that burdensome hurdle of buying something outright and get the equipment you need to better serve your patients.

This off-balance sheet financing structure provides three options at the end of the term. The lessee has the option to return the equipment to the lessor, renew at a discounted rate, or purchase the instrument for the fair market value. Monthly payments are also 100% tax deductible which yields additional monetary savings.
If you recently bought equipment, Excedr can offer you cash for your device and convert your purchase into a long-term rental. This is called a sale-leaseback. If you’ve paid for equipment within the last ninety days, we can help you recoup your investment and allow you to make low monthly payments. This also frees up money in your budget rather than tying it down to a fixed asset.
