Make : Make sure you have a formal visual field test performed at your eye doctor's office so your peripheral vision can be formally asssessed.

It : It is important that this finding be carefully evaluated with an ophthalmologist. A test called a visual field will be able to MAP out exactly the limits of your vision. This deficit can then lead to a diagnosis of the problem.
