A visual field test is a method of measuring an individual’s entire scope of vision, that is their central and peripheral (side) vision. Visual field testing actually maps the visual fields of each eye individually. The visual field test is a subjective examination, requiring the patient to understand the testing instructions, fully cooperate, and complete the entire test in order to provide useful information.
Visual field testing is most frequently used to detect any signs of glaucomadamage to the optic nerve. In addition, visual field tests are useful for detection of central or peripheral retinal disease, eyelid conditions such asoptic nerve disease, and diseases affecting the visual pathways within the brain. The visual pathways carry information from the eye to the visual or occipital cortex in the brain, where this information is processed into vision.

  • Each eye is tested separately, and the eye not being tested is covered with a patch.It usually takes about 8 minutes per eye for the test. After the test one can resume normal activity.
  • Depending on results, further follow-ups, evaluation, or treatment may be recommended.
