Abstract

Goldmann kinetic perimetry is a commonly used method of evaluating the peripheral visual field. Ongoing gene therapy trials have targeted the central retina, but have nonetheless often included Goldmann kinetic perimetry as part of extensive preinterventional and postinterventional assessment. Future gene therapy trials may target the entire retina through intravitreal injections, as have drug therapeutic trials, further necessitating the evaluation of function across the entire retina. In the following pages, we will briefly review the necessary steps to perform and quantify the visual field, using the conventional Goldmann perimeter and the Field Digitizer software (version 4.20; Johns Hopkins Technology Ventures, Baltimore, USA), respectively.
