Self Glaucoma Test
Here is a website where you can try a simple test similar to the visual field test done in clinics.
With one eye covered, press the button each time you see a point appear on the screen while looking at the fixation point in the center.
You will receive the result by e-mail.
When you find any abnormality in the self-test, and if it is glaucoma, there is a high possibility that the level of glaucoma is more than moderate.
Even if not, there is a possibility of retinal detachment, central serous retinopathy, or retinal vein occlusion in addition to glaucoma, therefore, we recommend that you visit an ophthalmologist as soon as possible.
Examinations of ophthalmologist can confirm the abnormalities that cannot be detected by a self-examination, so if you are concerned about glaucoma, please visit us by getting an appointment requesting glaucoma examnation.
