Computerised Visual Field Assessment

Peripheral Vision Test

You may be advised to have this test if we are concerned that your peripheral vision might have been damaged. This is especially important if you have a family history of glaucoma, if you have had a stroke, or if you have unexplained headaches.

the Test

The test is carried out using computerised equipment called a Visual Field Analyser or Visual Field Screener. You are usually given a small handset on which there is a button. You look into the instrument, usually with one eye covered up, and simply press the button every time you see a flash of light.

your result

The results are analysed by computer and can be monitored over a period of time to detect slight changes in your eyes' performance. Results can also be emailed securely to colleagues, or to hospital eye departments as part of a referral process if necessary.

A very basic visual field test may be included in a standard eye examination. If Computerised Visual Field Assessment is required there will normally be a fee for this service.

Great friendly staff, expert services, completely satisfied with the whole experience and it's nice not to be rushed in and out like the big chain stores. Highly recommended.
First class professional service, all the staff are very courteous and helpful. Would heartily recommend Belson & Sons to all who expect the best in expertise and care.
I have been using Belson & Sons for around 30+ years, the staff have always been polite, friendly and courteous; the opticians are very professional and thorough.
I wouldn't go anywhere else. I have been going to Belson & Sons opticians for 21 years and I would recommend them to anyone who wants to see an optician.
I have been using Belson & Sons Pitsea branch for years now and would not dream of changing. The examination is always thorough and the personal service is exceptional.
I was always made to feel welcome, and felt as if every attention was being given to the care of my eyesight, unlike my (limited) experiences with some of the national chain opticians.
