Abstract/OtherAbstract:
The "Visual Retinal Profile" can be obtained in the complete office evaluation of patients with night vision disorders, unexplained poor visual acuity, or undiagnosed retinal and/or choroidal diseases. This profile allows later follow-up evaluations and comparisons of previous tests to document improvement or progression of disease. The profile consists of the usual ophthalmologic evaluation plus color vision testing Amsler grid, stereoacuity, visual fields, electroretinogram (ERG), and electrooculogram (EOG). This entire set of tests, though time consuming, can be performed in the office by an ophthalmic assistant and greatly add to the ophthalmologists ability to evaluate and diagnose subtle retinal and/or choroidal diseases. A portable ERG/EOG and light source will be described that can be used in the office, clinic, nursing home, or operating room by trained office personnel.
