Traditional eye tests only provide a small amount of information about functional vision. To understand your own functional vision, in addition to the traditional measurement of visual acuity, you must also know how broad, clear and fast your vision is. All four of these factors have a large impact on how one perceives their environment and is able to function in it.
An extended and even visual field is important, for example, in traffic. It is rarely possible to know what one fails to see, as our brains attempt to fill in all the missing areas. This can be dangerous, certainly, in traffic.
The clarity of visual field is necessary in order to distinguish objects from their backgrounds. One needs to be able to perceive lights, shadows, and shades. This is called contrast vision. If one’s contrast vision is lowered, this can lead to various kinds of challenges. For instance, it may be hard to see the edges of stairs when walking up or down stairways. It may be difficult to determine the shapes of objects. Or, when one is skiing, hills and bumps may not stand out well in one's vision. Dim lighting and poor weather can make this worse.
Visual acuity is necessary for recognizing objects, and it is measured through tests of distance vision, terminal vision and near vision. The test results determine whether your current glasses are good enough for you to recognize objects at various distances, or whether you need glasses at all.
The speed of vision stands for the pace at which your eyes, brain and hands operate together, and for the processing speed of your neural functioning. This is called vision based reaction time. If your sensory impressions take too long to process, your vision is not efficient. This can have serious consequences, for example when driving in traffic. Also, sports frequently require swift reactions.
