In epidemiology, screening for visual field defects has traditionally been expensive, time consuming and laborious. To achieve cost- and time-effective visual field screening, a faster algorithm has been developed for the Humphrey perimeter called Fastpac, which is designed to achieve threshold perimetry in two-thirds the time of the standard algorithm. We compared the Fastpac and conventional full-threshold 24-2 fields obtained in 39 eyes of 36 participants. We divided the participants' fields into normal (14) and glaucomatous (25) visual field groups, and compared the test times, number of questions asked and statistical parameters generated for each field for Fastpac as compared to the st..
