Standard for pattern electroretinography. International Society for Clinical Electrophysiology of Vision

Doc Ophthalmol. 2000 Jul;101(1):11-8. doi: 10.1023/a:1002732114721.


The pattern electroretinogram (PERG) is a retinal response evoked by viewing an alternating checkerboard or grating. It receives clinical and research attention because it can provide information about inner retinal cells and the macula. However, clinicians may have trouble choosing between different techniques for recording the PERG that have been described in the literature. The International Society for Clinical Electrophysiology of Vision has prepared a standard for a basic PERG recording procedure to aid new users in obtaining reliable responses and to encourage more uniformity among existing users.
