The last century and a half has seen many advances In functional detection of visual field defects from Von Graefe's confrontation examination and tangent screens in 1856, (2) Aubert and Forster's simple arc perimetry in 1869, (3) Scherk's bowl perimeter in 1872, (4) Bjerrum's campimeter in 1889, (5) Goldmann's projection bowl perimeter In 1945, (6) The Tubinger Perimeter of Harms and Aulhorn in 1959 (7) to the age of automation in the 1980's in the form of the Humphrey Visual Field Analyser, the first computer controlled automated static threshold perimeter, (8) which have led to standard automated perimetry (SAP), our current gold standard.

12) Of 667 respondents providing domiciliary sight tests, 86% indicated that confrontation was their primary method of domiciliary visual fields assessment, with 34% of these practitioners indicating that they also had access to another technique, most commonly the red dot test or the Damato Campimeter, which is particularly useful as a glaucoma screening tool.
