Acusight offers advanced retinal and glaucoma testing. Our new, modern visual electrophysiology (VEP) and electroretinography (ERG) system helps us diagnose vision disorders earlier, as well as track disease progression and treatment efficacy. These test results will in turn help our practices work together with your primary care doctor for appropriate, co-management, and treatment planning, to better preserve your vision.
The electroretinogram (ERG) measures the function of the retina, showing results of diseases, injury, therapy or trauma. Similarly, the visual evoked potential (VEP) test measures the integrity of the complete visual pathway, from the eye to the brain, for abnormalities caused by systemic diseases and disorders. The test is completely objective, taking the stress of current testing methods away from the patient.
In our practice, we primarily use these tests to help diagnose and manage glaucoma, diabetic retinopathy, macular degeneration, patients taking Plaquenil, and amblyopia. However, VEP and ERG test results can benefit a much wider range of patients. Our goal is to deliver the highest quality vision care available, and VEP/ERG is a powerful tool that helps us get there.
