Un examen du champ visuel mesure votre vision périphérique (vision de côté). Cette brochure vous fournit des instructions pour vous aider à vous préparer à l’examen du champ visuel. On y traite de la façon dont l’examen est effectué, de la manière de s’y préparer (ce que vous pouvez manger et boire, les médicaments, le port des lunettes ou des lentilles de contact, etc.), de la conduite et des résultats. Lorsque vous aurez l'heure de votre rendez-vous, vérifiez si vos yeux seront dilatés pour pouvoir demander à quelqu'un de vous reconduire à la maison après votre test. Si vos yeux sont dilatés, ils seront sensibles à la lumière du soleil et votre vision sera floue.
