About Japan Imaging and
Perimetry Society (JIPS)

Greetings from the President

Japan Imaging and Perimetry Society (JIPS) is an academic society to promote the study of the visual field and imaging from various points of view. Since the founding of the Japan Perimetric Society in 1980, we have carried out basic and clinical research in this field for 41 years. In step with the astonishing progress in the imaging technologies in recent years, our name was changed to Japan Imaging and Perimetry Society in 2019. JIPS has continued to participate in global activities in close coordination with our parent organization, the Imaging and Perimetry Society (IPS), which has held a total of four international meetings in Japan, in 1978 (Tokyo), 1992 (Kyoto), 2008 (Nara) and 2018 (Kanazawa).

The most prominent feature of our society is that our study topics cover several academic fields widely and cross-sectionally, including glaucoma, neuro-ophthalmology, retina, visual impairment, and basic visual physiology. We actively share information on early diagnosis of diseases, improvement in monitoring accuracy, the relationship between structure and function and the various QOV-related problems such as “certification of the visual impaired,” and “driving and the visual field.”

Among its members, there are not only physicians but also many orthoptists, and this society has widely opened its doors to researchers interested in the visual physiology field. Moreover, a basic visual physiology seminar is held every year as an arena for communication between professionals who play an active role in various fields, facilitating the sharing of information on the basics of visual physiology and cutting-edge research achievements.

From now and into the future, it is our sincere desire that more young physicians, orthoptists, and researchers will actively participate in this society and promote energetic social activities, which will lead to further contributions to the visual field and imaging studies.

I would like to ask for your cooperation and support in the further development of this society.

Chota Matsumoto, M.D., Ph.D.

President
Japan Imaging and Perimetry Society

Aims & Foundation

JIPS aims to promote knowledge of the visual field and the diffusion, standardization, and development of perimetric methods and technology.
Proposed by Dr. Hiroshi Kosaki, Japan Perimetric Society (JPS) was founded on February 3, 1980. The name was changed to Japan Imaging and Perimetry Society (JIPS) on May 11, 2018.

Activities

  • 1. JIPS hosts academic meetings in the visual field at least once a year.
  • 2. Through publications and the media, JIPS contributes to increased public awareness and education in the advancement of care for people with visual field defects in Japan.
  • 3. JIPS carries out activities for the early detection of visual field defects and to promote public welfare.
