Visual Field perimetry is considered a hallmark of glaucoma and a gold standard in diagnosing the disease. Standard automated perimeters are used to systematically measure visual fields. Because of the bulky size and lengthy time requirements of traditional devices such as the Humphrey, we have designed an alternative device: a portable, easy to use tool that uses Virtual Reality (VR) to detect a patient’s visual fields. Peri-Screener is a smart device that can conduct binocular perimetry tests in VR, taking into account a need for fixation. Our system consists of a VR headset, a response button and a smartphone. Peri-Screener does not require supervisory assistance, thus it is scalable to screen large communities, and its digitised data can quickly be shared with doctors and ophthalmic technicians across the world. Peri-Screener is an easily accessible, effective, low cost device for perimetry.
