Today, Vera Mönter's poster on "Reclaiming the Periphery" will be shown at ARVO in Seattle. Amazingly, we find unexpectedly steep frequency-of-seeing curves in the periphery. This challenges the old assumption that "peripheral visual fields are just too variable...". Please stop by poster #3916.

We have previously alerted to the subversive activity of the Open Perimetry Initiative who has been on the watch list of our Ministry for a little while (see the post of 17 Nov '12). It now turns out that they will be meeting at the ARVO convention on Sunday 5 May, 1:00 - 2:30 PM, Convention Center room LL3. We believe that this is a serious violation of the perimetric spirit. Perimeters cannot be open - they MUST be closed at least on one end, and ideally ring-fenced all the way around with a fierce and fiery firewall. DO NOT TOUCH THE DATA.
