Visual Field Testing

Request Appointment

Visual Field Testing is Simple and Accurate, Allowing Us to Gain Insight Into Eye Diseases like Glaucoma and Neurological Conditions Like a Stroke or Brain Tumour.

A Simple But Important Diagnostic Tool

Visual field testing measures your field of vision, and is the gold standard for detecting Glacouma and following its progression. It is a simple, non-invasive test to perform.

These tests measure:

  • Your range of vision (how far up, down, left, right, etc. you are able to look without moving your head or shifting your eyes)
  • Peripheral vision accuracy and and sensitivity
  • How well your eye discerns between objects and letters in various parts of your visual field

Fast, Safe, and Non-Invasive

Visual field testing relies heavily on your honest feedback. It does not involve the use of complicated equipment.

What a Visual Field Test is Looking For

Many people try to “ace” a visual field test. This actually makes it more difficult to derive information from your testing, as the purpose of the test is not to be “beaten” so much as it is to provide valuable information about your visual acuity at various points in your visual field.

By giving us perspective on your central and peripheral vision quality, a visual field test can signify the development of Glaucoma, damage to the brain’s visual pathways, and other eye diseases.
