VISUAL FIELD TESTING

Visual Field Testing

A visual field analyzer is an instrument used to test your peripheral or side vision. One of our visual field analyzers will be used to prescreen all patients over the age of ten. Abnormalities in peripheral vision can indicate the presence of ocular or neurological diseases, such as stroke, tumors and glaucoma. Early detection and treatment are essential with these conditions.

At Sundre Vision Care, we also have a more extensive field analyzer, which is used when more detailed information is needed. In patients with glaucoma, detailed routine visual field testing must be done annually to monitor the progression of the disease and the effectiveness of treatment.
