Visual field test is referred to as the method of testing the peripheral vision of an individual. It measures a person's entire scope of vision and is primarily used by the optometrist to monitor, diagnose and determine the severity of your glaucoma. Apart from diagnosing, detecting and monitoring glaucoma, visual field test treatment is also beneficial for detecting retinal diseases, your eyelid condition such as ptosis or drooping and even optic nerve disease. In addition, the eye vision test is also useful in diagnosing diseases affecting the visual pathways that carry information from the eye to the visual cortex in the brain, where this information is processed into vision. The visual field test treatment is usually performed in 3 different ways: confrontational visual field exam, tangent screen test, and automated perimetry exam. In the tangent form of testing you'll sit in front of a computer screen. Your target will be at the centre of the screen throughout. Images will be generated by the computer and you'll have to indicate when you are able to see objects in side vision. In case of automated perimetry test, you'll look into a dome-shaped instrument with an object in the centre of the dome. There will be flashes of light on the dome, when you see these flashes you'll press a button. Based on the reports collected from your eye vision test, you doctor will treat your vision problems as necessary and appropriate. In each of these test procedures, your eyes are tested separately.
