Peripheral Vision Testing Valleytown Eye Care

Peripheral Vision Testing

Peripheral visual is the part of your vision that we refer to as your “side vision” or that part that is not in the centre of your gaze.  This is important for many reasons including detection and mobility.

The testing of peripheral vision is called Visual Field testing and is usually an automated test.  It is essential for detection of certain eye diseases and also proper management of several ocular and systemic health conditions including glaucoma, pituitary tumours, stroke, macular degeneration and diabetes.

It is also a required test for Ministry of Transportation licensing.
