What is a peripheral vision loss?

Peripheral vision loss means that you can see normally through your central vision, but you do not have normal vision in a wide-angled field of sight. Also known as “tunnel vision,” lack of peripheral vision causes a sensation of seeing through a narrow tube. At Ottewell Eye Care, our peripheral visual field testing device allows us to detect loss of visual field early, when it can be most successfully treated. Peripheral vision loss may be caused by:

  • Brain damage from stroke, disease or injury
  • Compression of the optic nerve head
  • Concussions
  • Detached retina
  • Eye strokes or occlusions
  • Glaucoma
  • Neurological damage
  • Retinitis pigmentosa
