Visual Field Test in Scottsdale and Phoenix
We often associate our vision with being able to see what’s directly in front of us. But your visual field spans to the corners of your eyes too. This is called peripheral vision and it’s needed to see what’s happening around you.
Measuring this part of your vision gives our ophthalmologists insight into your vision strength and vision loss. A visual field test may be the best way to find a solution that can halt vision loss.
What Is a Visual Field Test?
Visual field testing is one way our team can evaluate your vision and determine if you have vision loss. For example, a visual field test can help detect blind spots in your vision. The size and shape of blind spots, called scotoma, can give insight into eye diseases or brain disorders affecting your vision.
