VISUAL FIELDS TESTING

 

The Humphrey Threshold Visual Fields test gives your optometrist vital information about the health of your eye. Visual fields testing (perimetry) is a comprehensive baseline test that measures your central and peripherial vision. It is a fast and easy way to identify subtle problem areas long before symptoms arise or serious damage occurs.

 

During this test, lights of varying intensities will appear in different parts of the visual field. The perception of these lights is charted to determine any problems. This test is performed quickly and easily and is effective in diagnosing and monitoring the progression of glaucoma, retinal, and neurological diseases. Performing this test at your yearly exams allows early detection and close monitoring of these diseases.
