Automated perimetry has evolved substantially in recent years, in part due to modern computer technology that enables more complex visual stimuli and test procedures to be realised than those incorporated in traditional white-on-white luminance increment perimetry. This paper reviews briefly a number of advances in automated perimetry. The review includes discussion of new test types: frequency doubling technology perimetry, short wavelength automated perimetry, flicker perimetry, high-pass resolution perimetry and rarebit perimetry. Test algorithms applied to perimetry such as zippy estimation of sequential thresholds (ZEST), Swedish interactive thresholding algorithm (SITA), tendency-oriented perimetry (TOP) and multi-sampling supra-threshold perimetry are also discussed.
