Presentation Title: Next Generation Visual Field Testing
Abstract: The visual field test (also known as perimetry) is a psychophysical test to test the light sensitivity across a grid of locations in a patient’s visual field. It is an indispensable tool for ophthalmologists to diagnose and monitor eye diseases, such as glaucoma. Current perimetry machines (“perimeters”) are big, expensive, and require trained technicians to operate. Current algorithms take a long time (3-5 minutes) to perform each eye’s test. In this talk I will briefly describe our efforts on modernizing the visual field test. On the hardware front, we are making the test portable and inexpensive by adapting the test to a portable VR platform. On the software front, we are incorporating data-driven algorithms to reconstruct the visual field at test time using fewer trials. Lastly I will describe how these advances allow for unprecedented novel applications of the visual field test, such as in mobile clinics in low-resource settings.
