Visual field testing can be performed in the pediatric population with ease, however the proper technique for testing must be utilized and is tailored to each child's unique clinical situation and age. Confrontation visual field testing is a quick and easy; test that can yield a rough assessment of the visual field. In older, cooperative patients, automated perimetry can also be performed. Herein, we discuss some techniques that; we use to successfully test the visual field in young patients.
