Electrodiagnostic procedures in drug-induced ocular diseases

    Research output: Contribution to journalArticleProfessionalpeer-review


    Modern electrophysiological methods like electro-oculography (EOG), electroretinography (ERG) and visually evoked cortical responses (VER) enable us to determine objectively the localization and the extent of drug-induced diseases in many cases.

    Sometimes more information can be obtained when advanced examination methods, such as the local foveal ERG, are used. The objective examination methods mentioned above are not the only techniques to rely on when the early diagnosis of drug-induced diseases is concerned. These methods have to be supplemented by other objective and psychophysical examination methods.

    Follow-up of electrodiagnostic results may be quite helpful in giving a reliable prognosis in drug-induced ocular diseases.
