Abstract
Despite innumerable developments in the field of glaucoma, it is one of the most undiagnosed disease, causing irreversible blindness. Perimetry is investigation in glaucoma management as it narrates the amount of functional loss of visual field secondary to the disease. In this review article we will journey through some of the landmark developments and future prospects in perimetry. This will include the new algorithms and testing strategies, pre-perimetric tests, novel techniques such as microperimetry, binocular field testing etc which have not only decreased the testing time but improved reliability of the tests. With the newer advancement such as Guided Progression Analysis(GPA) and Visual field Index(VFI) the focus of glaucoma management has now shifted to the rate of visual field loss, leading to timely surgical or medical management of glaucoma.
