BUMPING INTO OBSTACLES AT DAY TIME?
Do you know someone bumping into things around? It could even be you reading this article. Are you bumping into things lately, even on a bright sunny day?
Sometimes, while driving you can’t make a perfect turning without entering a ditch or almost hitting an object and the experience keeps repeating itself. Now, it seems it is getting worse with time.
The last instance is when someone is waving at you from the sideways and you just don’t always notice until you move your head towards the direction of the person before you see the person waving at you.
All of these are signs that your visual field may be compromised.
WHAT THEN IS VISUAL FIELD.?
Visual field is the extent to which you can see the periphery while looking straight ahead. A more relational example is how much you can perceive side vision while looking straight ahead when you are driving.
Having a visual field loss may be an indication of visual disorder such as glaucoma, retinitis pigmentosa or other retinal diseases that affect visual field.
So if you notice you bump into obstacles, you should visit the eye clinic for a comprehensive eye examination and know your visual status.
