Abstract/OtherAbstract:
The value of pattern electroretinography (PERG) for the detection and differentiation of senile macular degeneration (SMD) was assessed. A group of patients with atrophic SMD and a group with exudative SMD were compared with an age-matched reference group. Differences were only found in visual acuity and in the amplitude of the negative peak N95. No statistical differences between the atrophic and exudative groups were found. Conclusions may be drawn from these results with regard to the use of PERG in senile macular degeneration.
