Visual Field

Protect your eyesight against glaucoma and other ocular disease by getting regular visual field tests.

Visual field testing is a simple, non-invasive test that shows areas of damage caused by glaucoma that cannot be noticed by the patient until the damages are severe. Vision lost due to glaucoma is irreversible, hence the importance of scheduling regular visual field tests.

The visual field tests may also be required by the Ontario Ministry of Transportation (MTO).

The optometrists of Erin Mills Eye Care have the expertise and experience to perform these tests. If glaucoma is diagnosed, the patient will be systematically monitored at regular intervals to monitor the progression of the damages and prescribe appropriate treatments.
