An ophthalmologist is trained to identify even the smallest changes in a patient’s vision.
Ophthalmoscopy (looking at the back of the eye) may show swelling of the optic disc. In a Visual Evoked Potential (VEP) , electrodes are placed on the back of the head to measure the speed of nerve messages along the optic nerve from the eye to the brain. Damage to the optic nerve shows slower response time. The Visual Field Tests show whether there are any areas of vision missing (central or peripheral). Optical Coherence Tomography (OCT) is a scan that can measure the thickness of the nerve fibers in the optic nerve.
