Paper Abstract This paper introduces the R package visualFields, a contributed, open-source software for the analysis of the visual field. The package aims to provide a framework for collaborative research, including data sharing and conventional and novel methods. Single visual field and progression analyses, such as Permutation of Pointwise Linear Regression can be performed with visualFields using simple scripts. The package can be easily customized and it allows the inclusion of custom test locations and different normative values. Here, we demonstrate how to use the visualFields package and discuss its capabilities. The analyses presented here are easy to replicate upon installation of the package, which is freely available for download from the Comprehensive R Archive Network. The relevant R code is shown and commented on. A shift from proprietary to an open-source research platform is an important step towards more direct collaborative research. The visualFields package is part of the Open Perimetry Initiative, which is expected to grow as researchers contribute new routines and datasets.
