Imaging and Perimetry Society


Perimetry is the quantitative evaluation of the visual field. Ocular imaging is the assessment and evaluation of the structural details of the eye. The aims of the IPS are

1) to promote the study of normal and abnormal visual function and of ocular imaging.  
2) to ensure and facilitate the cooperation and friendship of scientists of different countries working and interested in these disciplines.

Some more specific objectives of the IPS are:

  • To promote the diffusion of knowledge of perimetry and ocular imaging and its important place among other methods of visual testing.
  • To promote the development of new methods and instruments.
  • To develop guidelines for routine perimetric and ocular imaging techniques.
  • To establish standards for recording, classification, equipment and nomenclature of perimetry and ocular imaging.
  • To promote education of specialized visual field examiners and ocular imaging technicians through courses and handbooks.

These objectives are realized to a large extent at the biannual IPS symposia. During these meetings, perimetric and ocular imaging research is presented and discussed.
