Visual Field Testing
Visual field testing assesses the degree of peripheral vision of each eye. Visual field testing is the standard of care to diagnose glaucoma and is utilized to monitor the effects of some high-risk medications. Testing may even detect health-threatening conditions such as aneurysms and tumors. Additionally, it is also important to evaluate any changes in peripheral vision following stroke or brain injury.
According to scientific studies and surveys, glaucoma is the most common cause of irreversible blindness. Based on prevalence studies, it is estimated that 79.6 million individuals had glaucoma by 2020, and this number is likely to increase to 111.8 million individuals in 2040. In many cases, glaucoma may be asymptomatic. Unfortunately, many individuals are unaware of the existence of glaucoma and as many as half of those with glaucoma are unaware that they are affected. In many cases, blindness can be prevented with appropriate control and treatment, and the VF-2000 can help with early detection of these diseases
