Visual Field 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 are flashed on, and you have to press a button whenever you see the light. Your head is kept still and you have to place your chin on a chin rest. The lights are bright or dim at different stages of the test. Some of the flashes are purely to check you are concentrating.

Each eye is tested separately and the entire test takes 15-45 minutes. Your optometrist may ask only for a driving licence visual field test, which takes 5-10 minutes. If you have just asked for a driving test or the clinic doctor advised you have one, you will be informed of the result by the clinic doctor, in writing, in a few weeks.

Normally the test is carried out by a computerised machine, called a Humphrey. Occasionally the manual test has to be used, a Goldman. For each test you have to look at a central point then press a buzzer each time you see the light.

DON'T LET YOUR FSA/HSA BENEFITS GO TO WASTE

Use It Or Lose It Slideshow By EyeCarePro

1. Get an eye exam

As December 31 nears, you may be scrambling to make all those healthcare appointments you’ve been meaning to schedule all year. Your FSA covers a comprehensive eye exam so schedule yours today.

2. Treat yourself to premium lenses fit for your lifestyle

Once you’ve renewed your prescription, consider spending some of your surplus dollars to give your eyewear an upgrade. Have you been longing to try a better quality lens? Now’s the time. If you’re tired of toting your readers from room to room, maybe it’s time for a progressive lens such as Varilux®. Or maybe you’d like glasses that help you see life in the best light; Transitions® lenses automatically adjust from clear indoors to dark outdoors. You can even combine Varilux and Transitions and really treat yourself.Do you spend hours in front of your phone or computer? You could benefit from a lens that helps alleviate digital eye strain like Eyezen™.

3. Throw in some shades – even in winter

The days may be shorter, but the sun’s UV rays can still harm your eyes, even in winter. If prescription sunglasses are on your holiday wish list, go ahead and treat yourself to protect yourself! Your FSA covers prescription sunglasses like Xperio UV® polarized sun lenses, which virtually eliminates glare, are scratch-resistant and provide UV protection on the front and backside of the lens.
