Understanding Eye Vision Test Results
I've been having vision disturbances in my left eye for 3 years now. All test results are normal. What should I do?
Two eye drs. Looking at visual field test result. One dr says it is normal & other says there's peripheral vision loss. Why the difference of opinion?
Interpretation: Interpretation of visual field change is somewhat subjective. As many as 5 cosequetive visual fields are necessary to show change over time. Peripheral changes can have a lot of "noise" in deciding whether or not it is real defect or not. Repetition of field testing and confirmation of defect over time is more accurate. Even then, there are many factors that can interfere in vf assessment. ...Read more

I took vision express online eye test and it said that my eyesight was 17% above average, what to do?
Difficult: A problem is that the number you receive for your eyeglass prescription does not easily correlate with the snellen fraction (the one that says 20/20 or whatever). So for instance a +2.00 correction might see 20/40 uncorrected while a -2.00 (note the sign) correction might see 20/100 uncorrected. Ask your ophthalmologist how bad your vision is in a meaningful way if this is important. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
Eye technician said my vision is 20/20, but exam result -.25/-.50. So then my vision technically isn't 20/20, am I correct?
May be 20/20: The technician may have been referring to you uncorrected vision or your best corrected vision as being 20/20. The other numbers (-.25, -.50) refer to the refractive error of your eyes. That is a very low nearsighted prescription, and many people would see 20/20 uncorrected even if they did not use that low prescription. You might have a sharper 20/20, or even better than 20/20 wearing that Rx. ...Read more
Wondering why eye vision went from -2.25 to -2.75 within less than a year. Seems a lot. Was stressed between that time. Recent opthalm. test: VGood.
Not significant: The final numbers for vision are based upon subjective information which includes how you felt on the day of the examination, how sharp was the eye doctor doing the measurements, lighting in the room, etc. There is some room for values to be up and down. Your number went up 0.50 which is not a great movement and may reflect these uncertainties. Nothing here to worry about. ...Read more
