Visual Field Integrity

Your central visual field is very good and even.

Good visual field sensitivity allows you to notice even weak targets and react to them immediately.

Sensitivity of your central visual field is superior to 32 percent of people your age.

The marked portion of the bar represents half the results of people your age. If your result is to right of this, you belong to the top 25% of your age group.

Our ophthalmologist Markku explains this indicator:

Like an audiogram, visual field sensitivity is measured in decibels (dB). The value given is the mean sensitivity (MS) of your central field of vision to faint flashes of light, and a big MS value is better than a small one. With age the sensitivity of the visual field declines somewhat, in other words, when we become older we need more light.

When performing this test for the first time, people sometimes do not achieve such good results as those who are more experienced. It is a good idea, therefore, to do the test a second time if the first result does not seem very good.

Objects are easier to perceive if one’s field of vision is even and sensitive. Deficiencies in the visual field are often hard to notice, because the brain fills the gaps and completes the picture: a person then remains unaware of what he or she does not see. A sensitive and even field of vision is essential for one’s overall eyesight, but the sensitivity usually declines with age.

Signs of a deteriorating visual field:

  • Individual objects in one’s environment, such as an object on a table, can be difficult to find.
  • Some details may be missing from the full field of view.

Ocusweep functional vision examination measures the functioning of the visual system with both eyes - just as we use both eyes simultaneously in everyday life. This measurement is not a replacement for an eye health examination, where each eye is tested on its own while the other eye is blindfolded.
