Abstract

The electrooculogram (EOG) assesses the function of the retinal pigment epithelium (RPE), and also the interaction between the RPE and photoreceptors. This is done by noting the changes in the corneoretinal standing potential (the difference between the retina and electropositive cornea) during the dark-adapted and light-adapted states.
