A visual fields test is a critical diagnostic tool used to assess a patient’s peripheral vision. The results of this test provide information about the extent and severity of visual field loss, which can be caused by a range of eye conditions. At The Eye Lab, our experienced optometrists provide comprehensive visual field testing. With our precise and reliable assessments, we aim to provide accurate diagnoses and personalised treatment plans to ensure optimal eye health.
