The Clinical Electro-oculogram (EOG) is an electrophysiological test of function of the outer retina and retinal pigment epithelium (RPE) in which the change in the electrical potential between the cornea and the ocular fundus is recorded during successive periods of dark and light adaptation. This document sets out a Standard Method for performance of the test, and also gives detailed guidance on technical and practical issues, and on reporting test results. The main object of the Standard is to promote consistent quality of testing and reporting within and between centres. This 2006 Standard, from the International Society for Clinical Electrophysiology of Vision (ISCEV: ), is a revision of the previous Standard published in 1993, and reviewed and re-issued in 1998.
