St. Lawrence Optometry Clinic | Kingston Optometrists - visual field tests

By: St Lawrence Optometry Clinic  09-12-2011

How is the visual field test done?

Various forms of these tests measure your responses to the presence of lights in different areas of your visual field. While your head is held still on a chin rest inside a large bowl-like instrument, you stare at a target straight ahead. A series of random lights of different intensities are flashed in your peripheral field of vision. You then press a button to indicate each time you see a light appear in your field of view. A graph displays your results and will be interpreted by your optometrist.

St. Lawrence Optometry Clinic | Kingston Optometrists - healthy eyes program

A specific replacement schedule helps to prevent problems before they might occur and when patients do not have sufficient lenses on hand they are much more likely to wear them beyond the recommended schedule. Accumulated deposits, even with routine lens care, begin to erode the performance of your contacts and create a situation that presents a greater risk to your eye health.
