Visual field defects can be a sign of ophthalmic or neurological disease. The area of the visual field affected can help localise the lesion and suggest likely diagnoses. Clinical assessment to identify the basic type of field defect and any associated systemic symptoms will assist GPs in determining the urgency of referral and deciding between ophthalmic or neurological referral.
