Background: In the assessment of a pituitary mass, objective visual field testing represents a valuable means of evaluating mass effect, and thus in deciding whether surgical management is warranted. Case presentation: In this vignette, we describe a 73 year-old lady who presented with a three-week history of frontal headache, and 'blurriness' in the left(More)
method of quantitative anterior chamber depth estimation using temporal perpendicular digital photography. Purpose: We hypothesize that: (1) Anterior chamber depth (ACD) is correlated with the relative anteroposterior position of the pupillary image, as viewed from the temporal side. (2) Such a correlation may be used as a simple quantitative tool for(More)
Purpose: To describe a tangent perimeter developed on an Apple iPad (Melbourne Rapid Field, MRF). Methods: The MRF assays 66 locations over 288 3 188 by having the patient vary fixation. Spot size and background luminance are paired to yield constant thresholds across the field. Spot locations were selected after analysis of 360 patient records. The(More)
