Peripheral Vision Testing

A visual field test measures how much ‘side’ vision you have. It is a straightforward test, painless, and does not involve eye drops. Essentially lights flicker on, and you have to press a button whenever you see the light. The flickering lights are bright or dim at different stages of the test. Some of the flickers are purely to check if you are concentrating.

 Each eye is tested separately and the entire test takes 10 minutes
