Learning more about pediatric perimetry :)

Today I got to learn more about what perimetry is and how we can measure it in very young children in order to complete early diagnosis of diseases such as congenital glaucoma and hemianopia (reduced vision or blindness in one half of the visual field).  It was also neat to see the work already done…check out the dome below that we’ll be working with (and making more friendly for babies :)) this week!Monday_device pic
