A New, Objective Way to Assess Visual Fields: Visual Evoked Potentials
Date:8/2/2011

table and non-invasive method to quantify the integrity and functionality of the retina and visual pathway.  Patients simply watch a monitor that uses a black and white pattern that appears to "flip" back and forth to stimulate the vision system. Patients do not have to verbally respond nor press any buttons, which helps the doctor to be more confident in the results. Testing may take as little as five minutes, and results may be used to correlate with other conventional vision tests.

"This VEP technique also shows promise for assessing and documenting the visual status of troops pre- and post deployment. Bomb blasts from IED's frequently cause injuries to the brain resulting in mild to severe cognitive impairment. These impairments often preclude the use of other testing methods as poor patient response renders certain tests ineffectual," says Dr. Ciuffreda.

VEP vision testing covers a wide range of visual and neurological conditions such as glaucoma, macular degeneration, Alzheimer's disease, and visual problems associated with stroke and traumatic brain injury (TBI). The results of this study will be used to develop specific protocols for objectively assessing residual visual field functionality in ocular and neurological conditions, as well as the disorders already mentioned.
