Multiple interconnected processes of the visual system occur when visual fields
are tested and charted.
The kinetic field measures a combination of sensitivity, integration, and
response. This integration (matching and identifying) is a learned process.
The question: "Tell me when you first notice the dot", asks the
individual to match and identify: size, shape, contour, texture, brightness, reflectance,
contrast, speed, direction, distance, color, and motion while integrating the many
subsystems of balance, orientation, timing, and speech-auditory through present and past
experiences. When disorganization or timing errors occur in any of these systems, the
response is diminished and slowed. This poor processing results in a smaller field.
Optometrists, and other interested Vision Care Specialists, Psychologists,
Medical Doctors, School Counselors, and Nurses see these affected performance patterns
every day and call them symptoms. These symptoms are easily demonstrated and documented
on-paper by showing the Visual Performance Fields. Use the VPF Testing instrument to
clearly and rapidly on-paper Diagnose, Demonstrate, and Document visual problems that
relate to behavior, motor, and cognitive problems.
