Measurements of peripheral visual acuity allow quantitative estimations of retino-cortical neural channels. Analysis of results from high-pass resolution perimetry revealed that about 2/3 of all channels are contained within 30 degrees of visual field eccentricity and that loss of 1/3 raises the average threshold level about 1 decibel. The analytical procedure can be applied to any type of visual field defect.
