Visual Field

Loss of side vision can be a sign of glaucoma. Visual Field testing measures your side (peripheral) vision.

All eye examination patients are first tested on our Humphrey Matrix Visual Field Instrument, a pre-screening instrument which quickly tests your peripheral vision in response to movement. If further testing is indicated from the doctor's examination or the pre-screening test, Humphrey's Central 30 Sita-Standard or Sita-Fast; the gold standard of Visual Field testing is administered to the patient.

This tests your peripheral visions' sensitivity to light response. The Matrix may also be used which is more comprehensive testing of your peripheral visions' sensitivity to movement. Visual Fields can also detect peripheral visual loss from Macular Degeneration, stroke and other problems causing visual loss.
