MyVisualField©Static Test the Visual Field Test Performed with a Smartphone and a Virtual Reality Visor: An Advance Study


The goal of this research is to see if virtual reality can be used to build a perimetric test that can be used with a smartphone app while still keeping the important aspects of perimetry. Glaucoma is a type of optic neuropathy that causes the loss of retinal ganglion cells (RGCs) as well as usual visual field deficits. It is now considered the greatest cause of permanent blindness in the world, affecting more than 60 million people. The MyVisualField (MVF) test mimics a static perimetry test by employing a fixed focal point and variable intensity light objects. Despite the limitations imposed by the system’s lack of clinical certification, the specified goals – to use virtual reality to conduct a test that offers a graphic readout of sensitivity and the difference between diseased and normal – were met.
