Esterman Test

The Esterman Visual Field Test is the recommended specialised test used by the DVLNI to determine if the patient’s peripheral (side) vision is still suitable for driving. Sometimes certain medical conditions can affect peripheral vision in one or both eyes, so this needs to be tested to maintain road safety and remain compliant with your car insurance (conditions e.g.advanced Glaucoma, diabetes, stroke, head injuries and brain tumours).

Visual Field Scanner

The test is done using our gold standard piece of equipment called the Humphreys Field Analyser manufactured by Zeiss. It is very sensitive to picking up very early signs of retinal damage even if patients have no outward symptoms

The Esterman Visual Field Test is carried out on both eyes together, wearing any glasses that you normally wear when driving. It is carried out on a visual field analyser, a computerised machine where you have to responding to small, flashing lights by pressing a button whilst looking straight ahead. The test takes minutes to complete.
