Visual Field Testing

  • Glaucoma affects the side vision before the reading vision.

  • Therefore, many patients do not know they have a blinding disease until it is too late.

  • Visual field testing is necessary to catch the earliest changes in glaucoma.
  • The test may be conducted using a computer or a technician. The Glaucoma Center at Stony Brook has the capabilities to provide computerized testing with state-of-the-art equipment or manual testing under the direction of certified, experienced personnel. In either situation, the most accurate results can be obtained in order to assist with the evaluation of your eye disease.
