Visual field testing helps determine where your peripheral vision begins and ends
What We Test For
Visual field testing may be required for any of the following reasons:
How It's Conducted
The test will involve looking at a central fixation point and responding to the appearance of a brief flash of light in your peripheral vision. The test is usually conducted in a darkened room, and you will be asked to look straight ahead at a central target. As the test progresses, the examiner will record your responses to flashes of light appearing in different parts of your visual field.
