The Visual Field Test gives you the chance to examine the correct functioning of the visual pathways and can be used for the screening and monitoring of certain eye conditions such as Glaucoma and/or neurological conditions which cause defects in or serious damage to both central and peripheral vision.
Today the Visual Field test for glaucoma is still the best test to determine the extent of the damage to sight and, by carrying out programmed checks, to gain control over the progression of the condition.
The test is additionally useful for screening purposes, or where risk of disease is suspected, for example for people who have a family history of glaucoma.
Visual Field Tests, while capable of providing a lot of useful information, have a limited accessibility as average waiting times can be up to several months. The carrying out of tests with a perimetry test machine as used by doctors and technicians requires time and investment, and is reserved for clinics, hospitals and healthcare professionals.
