Visual field defects (VFD) can be caused by a variety of conditions. Checking and tracking the progression of VFD is an important part of an eye assessment. Although the use of standard automatic perimetry (SAP) is very popular for VFD diagnosis, it limits the population because of its high requirement for patients. We used a video-watching task as a replacement modality, which precludes the long period of fixation and uses the on-screen gaze to replace the button response. We developed a simulation system to mimic the different types of VFD in people with a normal pattern.We hypothesize that patients with VFD need more eye movement to compensate for the unseen area. We proposed a metric that indicates the gross eye movements toward a specific direction and found a significant difference between the VFD and normal pattern. Furthermore, we found videos that show the unique eye movement pattern in different eye conditions.
