Is there any place for non-standard automated perimetry in glaucoma monitoring?

Abstract

Several modes of non-standard automated perimetry have been introduced for the detection and the follow-up of glaucoma, with some techniques described over 30 years ago. The objective of these techniques was to allow clinicians to monitor glaucoma more effectively than standard automated perimetry. In spite of dozens of studies that report apparently favourable results with these techniques, their use has not become widespread, and arguably is decreasing. This presentation will review the evidence for the merit of non-standard automated perimetry and argue that given that the frequency of standard automated perimetry is well below practice standards, non-standard perimetric techniques have a limited role in glaucoma.
