Abstract

Australian demographic studies show that visual impairment contributes significantly to elderly disability. Visual field loss due to glaucoma, the second leading cause of blindness in developed nations, may be slowed if detected early, but recent studies estimate 50% of Australians with glaucoma are undiagnosed. The fast and effective approaches to measuring visual fields discovered in this project will allow more accurate diagnosis and monitoring of vision loss; crucial for the ARC's priority goals of "ageing well, ageing productively" and "preventative healthcare". Developing smart algorithms in conjunction with Heidelberg Engineering creates an opportunity for the international promotion ..
