Clinical Electrophysiology of Vision

The course is designed to introduce those delegates unfamiliar with ophthalmology to the basic structure of the visual system including inherited and acquired defects on the first day to ensure everyone can fully benefit and participate in this course. Over the subsequent three days, a variety of educational techniques including lectures, interactive workshops and practical demonstrations, will be used to cover the course material.

This course addresses the various electrophysiogical tests that are used in the objective clinical assessment of the human visual system. Investigations that will be discussed include the electroretinogram (ERG); the pattern electroretinogram (PERG); the multifocal electroretinogram (mfERG); the electro-oculogram (EOG); and the visual evoked potential (VEP). Relevant imaging techniques such as fundus autofluorescence imaging (FAF) and optical coherence tomography (OCT) will also be addressed. Presentations will mainly use a case-based approach to demonstrate the clinical value of the tests and the way they affect the diagnosis and management of the patient. Both inherited and acquired disorders will be discussed. Practical sessions will concentrate on technical aspects and the performing of the test.

The course is intended for clinicians who wish to practice in the field or expand their knowledge, to scientists and allied health professionals who have an interest in clinical vision science and to technicians and clinical physiologists working in ophthalmological or neurological electrodiagnostic units.
