Visual Field Testing

Our office features the Humphrey visual field analyzer, the gold standard in field testing. Our computerized system creates a map of your peripheral vision and is integral part of the detection and treatment of glaucoma and many other sight threatening conditions.

Your responses on this test help your doctor determine the fullness of your field of vision. If you aren't able to see in certain areas, noting the pattern of your visual field loss may help your eye doctor diagnose your eye condition.

Many diseases can adversely affect the visual field including glaucoma, strokes, high blood pressure, diabetes, and multiple sclerosis, Medications can also affect the visual field, including antimalaria medicines like Plaquenil and Rheumatiod arthritis medicines like Methotrexate.
