A critical part of comprehensive eye care is a visual field. We highly recommend this test which gives a computerized examination of your side (peripheral) vision. Many diseases revealed by a visual field are undetectable in an eye examination and may only be diagnosed with a visual field. Some of the diseases that a visual field may detect are GLAUCOMA, retinal disease, BRAIN TUMORS, and many other disorders relating to the eye and brain.
The fee for this test is $10.00. Your insurance will NOT cover this cost.
□ Yes, I give consent to have a visual field.
□ No, I decline to have a visual field performed. I understand that this test helps in the detection of many diseases which can cause permanent and irreversible vision loss. I also decline this important part of my eye examination and release all doctors, personnel, and businesses associated with this facility from any liability related to the failure to detect and treat any condition in which the diagnosis would have been aided by this test.
Questions??? Please read ENTIRE page then we’ll happily answer any further questions.
