This course describes the applications of electroretinography (ERG) and visually-evoked potential (VEP) in primary eye care. Included are data acquisition from ERG and VEP, diagnosis, and differential diagnoses from these tests.


Course Objectives:

At the completion of this course, practitioners will be able to describe:

1. How ERG and VEP electrodiagnostic testing works

2. The physiology of these small milli- and micro-voltages across the retina and visual pathways

3. Indications for electrodiagnostics, and

4. Differential diagnoses and disease progression monitoring from ERG and VEP
