Abstract

Static exploration with ‘close single stimuli’ that we devised for the pericoecal area examination was used for a Perimetric evaluation of patients with optic sub-atrophy. The graphic (e.g. densitometric) representation of the results yields a fairly good display of the Perimetric damage of this region. In turn the numerical representation of the whole defect in this area (pericoecal formula) offers a very useful indication for the quantitative follow-up of these cases.
