Abstract

Visual field extent along the four diagonal meridia was measured cross-sectionally in 180 normal children (infants and toddlers), and 22 adults. Infants were tested monocularly at 3.5, 7, or 9 months, and toddlers were tested binocularly at 11, 17, or 30 months. Adult control data were obtained under monocular viewing. Three testing methods were investigated: static and hybrid static-kinetic perimetry, using LED arrays under computer control, and kinetic perimetry, using white styrofoam spheres manipulated by hand. Data analysis included corrections for false positives in the method of constant stimuli and for errors of anticipation in the ascending method of limits. Across all data sets from children, kinetic perimetry yielded larger, more adult-like fields, which approached adult levels around 17 months, whereas static and hybrid static-kinetic perimetry yielded smaller visual fields, approaching adult levels only at 30 months.
