Bailey_Plano_AdvTest_7313
Formal visual field examinations are generally performed using automated perimetry. These instruments work by measuring the ability of persons to see points of light at varying locations on a curved surface.

Visual field examinations may be indicated in any of the following clinical circumstances

  • glaucoma
  • glaucoma suspect
  • other optic nerve disease
  • neuro-ophthalmic disease
  • retinal disease
  • systemic disease
  • vascular conditions affecting the visual fields
  • high-risk medications affecting the visual fields
  • disorders of the eyelids affecting the visual fields
  • significant eye injury
  • new functional limitations (can be reported by family members as “running into things”)
  • unexplained vision loss (can be described as “trouble seeing” or “vision going in and out”)
