New Visual Field Machines For Improved Speed & Quality

Marion Eye Center has recently acquired a brand-new visual field technology that allows twice the speed when testing visual fields on glaucoma patients and others requiring such testing. The visual field machine, manufactured by Carl Zeis Meditech, performs the highest quality visual fields for detecting progression or initial changes of glaucoma. The previous technology used had offered visual field testing that would last anywhere from 10-15 minutes. New technology performs the same sensitivity and detail in approximately 3-5 minutes. One of the major concerns and complaints from patients was the time taken to perform and complete a visual field test. This new technology eliminates lengthy testing yet yields the same detail and sensitivity to detecting glaucoma. All visual field testing at Marion Eye Center will utilize this new technology.
