Interpreting Visual Fields

Examining the visual field is an essential investigative technique used on a daily basis by eye care practitioners. It can provide useful information and help identify ocular pathology such as glaucoma, as well as neurological pathology such as stroke and space occupying lesions.

This e-learning article will cover the various methods of assessing the visual field. The main focus will be on static threshold testing; thought as the gold standard of visual field examination. A step-by-step method of interpreting visual fields will be explored and how to differentiate ocular pathology from neurological pathology using visual field interpretation will be discussed.
