Visual Field Testing



The visual field is the entire area of vision. To test your peripheral vision (how you see what is not directly in front of you) doctors usually ask patients to close one eye, and fix the open eye on the doctor’s face while the doctor moves his or her finger toward the center of vision from above, below, left and right. The patient must tell the doctor when the finger is first detected. The visual field can be measured in greater detail if the doctor finds it necessary. Doctors use visual field testing to check for abnormal blindspots, to monitor for macular degeneration, to detect changes in the characteristics of the optic nerve, stroke or brain trauma, and other medical and eye diseases (glaucoma)
