ISCEV standard for clinical electro-oculography (2010 update)

Abstract

The clinical electro-oculogram (EOG) is an electrophysiological test of function of the outer retina and retinal pigment epithelium (RPE) in which changes in electrical potential across the RPE are recorded during successive periods of dark and light adaptation. This document presents the 2010 EOG Standard from the International Society for Clinical Electrophysiology of Vision (ISCEV: www.iscev.org). This revision has been reorganized and updated, but without changes to the testing protocol from the previous version published in 2006. It describes methods for recording the EOG in clinical applications and gives detailed guidance on technical requirements, practical issues, and reporting of results. It is intended to promote consistent quality of testing and reporting within and between clinical centers.

This update was approved by ISCEV, 10 November 2010 at the Annual General Meeting in Perth, Western Australia. This document is available on the ISCEV website: http://www.iscev.org.
