Worldwide, 79.6 million people experience glaucoma, which can cause visual field loss to the individuals. Visual field examination plays an important role in the detection of glaucoma. However, current visual field examination approaches have disadvantages, such as requirements for expensive equipment, long testing time, location restrictions, and more. In the present study, we propose an assessment based on saccadic reaction time (SRT) to overcome the issues in the existing approaches. To confirm the effectiveness of our method, we simulated different stages of glaucoma using a visual field defect simulation system. The result of the visual experiment showed that the discrimination method using SRT can distinguish different symptoms with less testing time.
