Computer-Based Classification of Visual Field Data

An Internet-based classification system for visual field data, like the one proposed here, furnishes a valuable first overview in judging perimetric examination results and gives an indication towards the final diagnosis by a physician. It should not be considered a substitute for the diagnosing physician. However, thanks to the world-wide accessibility of the Internet the classification system offers a promising perspective towards modern computer-assisted diagnosis in medicine.
