In 2018, Virtual Field introduced an exceptional eye examination experience that has continued to evolve and redefine eye care. Eye care professionals, including ophthalmologists and optometrists, have harnessed the power of Virtual Field's BOLT algorithm to examine patients more efficiently, comfortably, and accurately. In this blog, we'll delve into the innovative BOLT algorithm developed by Virtual Field and explore how it has been transforming eye examinations since its introduction.

The Virtual Field Experience

Virtual Field offers a comprehensive suite of eye exams that goes beyond the conventional tests. The lineup includes Visual Fields (24-2, 10-2, 30-2), Kinetic Visual Field (Goldmann Perimetry), Screening (Ptosis, Esterman), Color Vision, Pupillometry, and more. What sets Virtual Field apart is the company’s unwavering commitment to delivering fast, efficient, and comfortable exams to patients.

Exploring the BOLT Algorithm

At the core of Virtual Field's success lies their proprietary BOLT thresholding algorithm. This groundbreaking algorithm significantly reduces testing time, taking just 2-4 minutes per eye compared to industry-standard threshold taking 5-7 minutes per eye. BOLT strikes the perfect balance between accuracy and speed, ensuring that patients receive reliable results without spending unnecessary time in the examination chair.

This algorithm achieves its remarkable efficiency by evaluating the visual field as a whole. It identifies positions that require further testing and those that already provide sufficient information. This intelligent approach not only streamlines the examination process but also enhances the accuracy of the results. BOLT is available for three monocular patterns: 24-2, 10-2, and 30-2, making it a versatile tool for eye care professionals.

After just two of the same exams on the same eye, Virtual Field enables eye care professionals to generate a progression analysis report. This report is invaluable for tracking changes in a patient's visual field over time, making it a crucial tool for detecting and monitoring eye diseases.

The Importance of the BOLT Algorithm

Algorithms like BOLT continue to play a vital role in the field of eye care. They are indispensable for glaucoma detection, monitoring eye diseases, and evaluating the effectiveness of treatments. Speedy exams not only improve the patient experience but also allow eye care professionals to see more patients in a day, ultimately benefiting the entire healthcare system.
