In brief: Tests- glaucoma

Testing for glaucoma includes intraocular pressure, evaluating the optic nerve, peripheral vision testing, evaluating the retinal nerve fiber layer and evaluating all of these parameters for progression.

In brief: Varies

There are numerous tests that are known as a "glaucoma test".
There are measurements of your eye pressure and also tests which measure the function of the optic nerve. Which tests are done vary from case to case. Make sure you are going to a place which checks the health of your eye rather that a place which just sells glasses.
