Kinetic perimetry of both eyes was performed using an Octopus 900 perimeter (Haag-Streit Inc., Koeniz, Switzerland).
Kinetic perimetry has an extent of 90[degrees] of the visual field including the far periphery, as it enables to cover large areas of the visual field in a fairly short time.
Static perimetry within 30[degrees] is a standard in glaucoma diagnostics and monitoring; kinetic perimetry is preferred in neuroophthalmological conditions, extended visual field defects, and low visual acuity.
Kinetic perimetry seems to be better suited for low vision patients, as there are moving stimuli of large size.
Goldmann manual kinetic perimetry is very rarely used nowadays, as it is manually operated and is charged with examiner bias.

(a) VF results of both eyes (right eye on the right and left eye on the left) obtained with semiautomated kinetic perimetry and V4e stimulus moved with the speed of 5 degrees per second in patient with LHON.
