In Office Electrodiagnostics, What Can It Do For You”

Description: Electrodiagnostics can be a confusing, intimidating area in optometry. These tests VEP, ERG, MFERG, EOG are often the key to diagnosis and prognosis of a number of inherited and acquired conditions. Although in the past most optometrists did not perform these tests on a regular basis, that is now changing with evolving technology, and this testing is now being incorporated into private practice optometry. Knowing when to refer, and most importantly, which test to refer for can be critical for a patient's diagnosis and management. This interactive one-hour lecture will review these concepts in electrodiagnostics.
