Humphrey Field Analyzer II

Visual field testing is used to determine glaucoma severity, progression, and visual function impairment. The Humphrey Field Analyzer is an industry-recognized standard for visual field testing. It is used to detect and manage glaucoma at all stages. Various testing protocol are used for screening and monitoring early to advanced glaucoma. SITA SWAP, an additional test run using the Humphrey Field Analyzer, is used specifically to detect glaucoma in its earliest stages. This helps you get the treatment you need quickly and efficiently.

Our visual field testing completed using a Humphrey Field Analyzer is a painless diagnostic test that requires you to press a button each time a light appears on a dome. The accuracy or inaccuracy from the test helps us identify any weaknesses in your vision that may indicate glaucoma.

Why We Use the Humphrey Field Analyzer II

  • Precision – This diagnostic tool is proven to provide accurate, reliable results.
  • Early Detection – Identify vision loss due to glaucoma earlier than other technology.
  • Speed – Complete in under two minutes.
  • Accessible – Can be used by patients in wheelchairs or with visual and hearing impairments.
  • Focal vs. Diffuse Vision Loss Recognition – Allows for better treatment plans.
  • Comparison and Baseline Measurements for Diagnostics – Pulls data from age-matched populations to improve accuracy.

Detect Glaucoma Earlier

OCT Glaucoma Detection

This method of testing for glaucoma can detect glaucoma up to six years earlier than alternative options. This slowly progressing disease will begin to steal your sight before you are aware of its presence. In fact, vision loss is usually the first sign patients notice before a glaucoma diagnosis. This earlier detection is possible given the advanced technology that allows the thickness of the retinal nerve fiber layer to be measured. The OCT Glaucoma Detection technology is also able to detect macular degeneration, another eye concern.

AN ASSESSMENT MINUS THE PESKY PARTS

No Dilation or Eye Drops

It’s no secret that people don’t enjoy the three hour period after an eye exam when they try to navigate the world with blurry, dilated eyes. When you come in for a GDx Access assessment you won’t need to have your eyes dilated nor will you have to deal with eye drops being placed in your eyes.

UP TO 6 YEARS FASTER AT DETECTING GLAUCOMA

Earlier Results

With this advanced technology, you will know you have glaucoma long before it has a chance to destroy your vision. This is due to the ability to see the thickness of the retinal nerve fiber layer. Because we can detect glaucoma at such an early stage, we can get you onto an individualized treatment plan.

Visual Field Testing

Have you ever been told to click a button each time you see a light flash across a dome during your eye exam? If you’ve played this vision test ‘game’ you’ve undergone a visual field test. These are fairly common and can give valuable insights into vision loss and potential eye disease development.

HOW DO I KNOW I NEED A VISUAL FIELD TEST?

Symptoms

The Visual Field Test is performed on everyone during their appointment, but if you experience any of the below symptoms your ophthalmologist may want to reconduct your assessment.

FREQUENCY DEPENDS ON THE INDIVIDUAL

How Often Do I Need a Visual Field Test Done?

A visual field test is routinely done during every routine exam. However, under certain circumstances, the visual field test will be completed more than once in a routine period.

  • If a change is seen in a routine exam then a retest will be conducted 1 to 3 months following the original assessment.
  • If you notice a change in your vision then an opthamologist will likely suggest a retest.

Simple & Easy Procedure for You

Non-Invasive Assessment

This is a minimally invasive way for an ophthalmologist to access your vision and determine if you have blind spots or weakened points in your peripheral vision. The ophthalmologist can use the results of this test to then identify any areas of concern that will need further investigating.

SOMETIMES EVEN LESS

Only Takes 15 Minutes

The visual field testing lasts for 10 to 15 minutes. Chances are you’ll be so focused on completing the test you won’t notice the minutes passing. Results are provided immediately, meaning we will be able to review your results with you the same day.

Only Worry About Clicking the Button

No Pain

Completing a visual field test is a bit like playing a vision game. There are no puffs of air as with intraocular pressure testing machines and there’s no pressure placed on your eyes. This painless assessment only requires you to press a button as you see lights appear. The hardest part will be focusing on looking straight the entire time.

FAQ

Who is at risk of developing glaucoma?

If you are over the age of 40, have a family history of glaucoma, or are of African, Asian or Hispanic heritage, you have a heightened risk of developing glaucoma. Other risk factors include:

  • Myopia or hyperopia
  • High eye pressure
  • Sustained a previous eye injury
  • Diabetes or other health concerns

How can I prevent glaucoma from worsening?

Keeping up with glaucoma treatment and regularly scheduling exams with your ophthalmologist can help you manage your glaucoma. You can also combat glaucoma by keeping a healthy lifestyle, cutting back on alcohol and caffeine intake, and eating healthy.

Is there a cure for glaucoma?

There is currently no cure for glaucoma. However, there are treatments to slow the progression of glaucoma. These treatments help to prevent total blindness caused by glaucoma.

What causes glaucoma?

Glaucoma is caused by damage to the optic nerve. You are unlikely to see symptoms until later in life which makes regular eye exams important for early detection. Glaucoma is linked to high eye pressure, referred to as intraocular pressure or IOP. This increased IOP is caused by a blockage in the channel that allows for fluid to flow from your eye.

Is glaucoma hereditary?

Glaucoma is hereditary and having a family history of the disease greatly increased your odds of developing glaucoma in the future. If you have a family history of glaucoma you should be aware of the symptoms and consistently visit the ophthalmologist for regular exams. This gives you a chance to catch glaucoma early and begin a treatment plan.
