290 Possible Causes for Loss of Peripheral Visual Fields

  • Neuropathy

    If your optometrist or ophthalmologist suspects you have optic neuritis, a visual field test usually will be performed to determine if you have peripheral vision loss .[]

  • Presbycusis

    visual field loss * Age related hearing loss * Speak LOW, Slow, Louder if neaded * Blocking sound from outside to inside ossicles - Excessive Cerumen build up Ringing in[] […] crystalline lens * Leading cause of blindness * At Risk - Over 80 y/o and Diabetics * Blurred Vision * Increased Intra-Ocular Fluids - Consequences of elevated pressure** * Peripheral[]

  • Herpes Zoster

    Patients present with sudden painless loss of vision, floaters and constricted visual fields with resultant retinal detachment.[] Multifocal, discrete opacified lesions begin in the outer retinal layers peripherally and/or posterior pole; only late in disease are inner retinal layers involved.[]

  • Anterior Cerebral Artery Occlusion

    […] the visual field.[] Describing such an episode, a patient may tell the doctor about a feeling or subsiding and disappearing shadows crossing the field of view or loss of peripheral regions of[]

  • Retinitis Pigmentosa

    The most common form of RP is a rod-cone dystrophy, in which the first symptom is night blindness, followed by the progressive loss in the peripheral visual field in daylight[] […] of rods and cones to apoptosis and focal proliferation of retinal pigment epithelium Loss of rods causes early night blindness and restricted visual fields (bilateral loss[] They then develop peripheral visual field impairment, and over time loss of central vision, usually at late stages, often around midlife.[]

  • Strabismus

    Loss of visual field can be a contributing factor in motor vehicle accidents. 11-13 6. Elimination or Improvement of Abnormal Head Posture.[] Visual field expansion can have a significant impact on the patient’s life since peripheral vision is recognized as an important prerequisite for highway safety and other[]

  • Glaucoma

    Visual-field testing is the best way to find early signs of loss of peripheral vision. Most often, visual fields are checked using an automated machine.[] […] progressive, peripheral visual field loss and, if untreated, eventual blindness.[] These peripheral areas of visual field loss increase until eventually the central vision is damaged leading to blindness.[]

  • Exfoliation Syndrome

    Visual field testing : may has peripheral visual field loss. OCT: allows the retinal nerve fiber layer to be assessed for any changes.[]

  • Adenoma

    The provider will note any problems with double vision and visual field, such as a loss of side (peripheral) vision or the ability to see in certain areas.[] Visual Field Examination - Compression of the optic chiasm causes a loss of peripheral vision on both sides.[] This evaluation should include acuity (vision quality) testing of each eye and formal visual field testing to determine if there is loss of peripheral vision.[]

  • Open Angle Glaucoma

    A cup to disc ratio greater than 0.6 on ophthalmoscopy is suspicious for glaucoma, and visual field testing results show a characteristic peripheral loss.[] The loss of vision from open-angle glaucoma typically starts from the peripheral visual field, or “side vision,” which means it is often unnoticeable.[] Visual field testing: Glaucomatous vision loss can be detected using visual field testing.[]
