Advanced Testing Kit And Analysis Software For Vis

Visual Field Perimetry, even though a cornerstone of glaucoma diagnosis, has always been a cumbersome and difficult test to administer as well as undergo. It was the only standard test to assess the functional damage due to glaucoma for several decades and had not evolved much despite rapid advancements in technology. This is now the era of Virtual Reality, and several innovators started to develop head-mounted visual field testing devices derived from gaming headsets including the extremely low-cost Google Cardboard.
Virtual Reality is an upcoming field and Perimetry is only one of the aspects of Ophthalmology being advanced by it. The Periscreener[1] developed out of a collaboration between Aravind Eye Hospita[2]l and Vellore Institute of Technology, essentially consists of a low-cost Google Cardboard headset, two ordinary android smartphones, and a Bluetooth clicker. It was crude and did only suprathreshold testing, but worked as a prototype.
