The difference in threshold sensitivities that are found when examining the visual field (VF) with static versus kinetic perimetric methods is called stato-kinetic dissociation (SKD). In this pilot study, we describe a semi-automated procedure for quantifying SKD. Fifteen patients with VF defects were examined with kinetic and static perimetry. SKD values were defined as positive when the static scotoma was larger than the kinetic one. We found significant local variations of SKD along scotoma borders with the individual reaction time as an important criterion when determining kinetic thresholds. There was a verifiable SKD in all patients with locally negative values in eight subjects.
