Visual Field Testing:

 A visual field test is an eye examination that can detect dysfunction in central and peripheral vision which may be caused by various ocular and medical conditions such as glaucomastrokepituitary diseasebrain tumor or other neurological deficits.

A visual field test is most commonly recommended in cases where damage to the optic nerve is suspected as a result of eye disease, e.g. glaucoma. Visual field testing is an important tool in the diagnosis and management of glaucoma where it is used to confirm that glaucoma has affected the visual function, to evaluate the severity and to monitor progression of the disease.

Visual field testing may also be performed to evaluate the peripheral vision in drivers who may have ocular disease in order to ensure their suitability to drive.

At HCO the Visual Field test is performed by patients under the close supervision of a specially trained technician. The test involves the patient looking at a curved screen and identifying a series of lights presented to different areas of the field of vision. At HCO the visual field test is carried out using the Humphrey Visual Field Analyzer; the most up to date “gold standard” automated perimeter. The test usually takes about 20 minutes to complete.
