“VEP and ERG Learning Lab”
featuring Dr. Nathan Lighthizer
SECO ID: 911
Electrodiagnostics can be a confusing, intimidating area in optometry. These tests (VEP, pERG, 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 didnt 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. VEP and pERG are being used much more often in more common ocular disease conditions such as glaucoma, plaquenil toxicity, macular degeneration, and diabetic retinopathy. This interactive two-hour lab will review these concepts in electrodiagnostics.
Diopsys, Inc. provides innovative technology to help improve your clinical practice. We have made unprecedented progress in the field of visual electrophysiology, creating accessible, practical electroretinography (ERG) and visual evoked potential (VEP) vision tests that can benefit your daily patients. Results from these tests are clinically effective in helping to manage a variety of vision disorders such as diabetic retinopathy, CRVO, retinal concerns obscured by media opacities, uveitis, optic neuritis, vision problems due to TBI, and more.1-7
Please visit us at booth #633 to learn how modern ERG and VEP can benefit your diagnostic and treatment plans.
