Title Visual fields with interpretation only - a preliminary evaluation
Creator Lossen, Victoria I; Leavitt, Jacqueline A
Subject Visual Field Testing; Endocrinology; Neurology; Neurosurgery; Radiation Oncology; Blepharoplasties
Description Since 2009 the Ophthalmology Department at the Mayo Clinic has allowed outside departments, within Mayo, to order visual fields for interpretation without a complete eye examination. Departments approved to order this innovative form of visual field e-consult include Endocrinology, Neurology, Neurosurgery, the subdivision of brain rehabilitation unit in Physical Medicine and Rehabilitation, Radiation Oncology and surgeons performing blepharoplasties (Plastic Surgery and ENT). Each referring physician determines the appropriate patients for the field with an interpretation only. A standard 24-2 Visual Field is performed. The interpreting neuroophthalmologist reviews patient's visual acuity and color vision, as collected by an ophthalmic technician, the indication for the test, any previous visual fields and all pertinent neuroimaging prior to concluding a finalized interpretation.
