Procedures & Services > Diagnostic Testing > Goldmann Visual Field
Goldmann Visual Field testing is performed in the office by a technician. This diagnostic test is used to detect the presence of abnormal blind spots in both peripheral and central vision. The patient is seated in front of a lighted bowl and asked to push a buzzer when light stimulus is seen coming in from the side of their vision. Size of the light and its brightness are determined by the responses given by the patient. The length of time for this test is based on reaction time and type of test requested by Dr. Radtke. After the test is finished, the doctor will review the test and share the results with the patient.
