If your patient comes in with head trauma and you preform a visual field.

Keep in mind the following.

– “Pie in the sky” visual field = temporal lobe lesion

– “Pie on the floor” visual field = parietal lobe lesion

– Anytime the lesion is in both eyes think post chiasmal.

– Also remember a lesion to the left side of the head is likely to give a right visual field defect and vice versa.
