This course provides an overview of visual fields, with an emphasis on neuro-ophthalmic conditions. The role of visual fields in neuro-ophthalmology is put into perspective. Guidelines are suggested for choosing the best field technique. Some of the newest field techniques are discussed. Anatomic correlations with visual fields are comprehensively detailed. Reliability and artifacts in visual fields are reviewed. Case examples of visual field defects are presented, with audience participation. The aim of this course is that viewers should be able to maximize their use of visual fields as a component of the complete evaluation in assessment of neuro-ophthalmology patients. This course is jointly sponsored by the Academy’s Annual Meeting Program Committee and the North American Neuro-Ophthalmology Society (NANOS).
