Standard for clinical electro-oculography. International Society for Clinical Electrophysiology of Vision

Arch Ophthalmol. 1993 May;111(5):601-4. doi: 10.1001/archopht.1993.01090050035023.


The electro-oculogram is a widely used electrophysiological test, but recording techniques vary among different laboratories. This standard, approved by the International Society for Clinical Electrophysiology of Vision (ISCEV), describes simple technical procedures that will allow reproducible and comparable electro-oculograms to be recorded under a few defined conditions. The document is intended to improve the comparability of electro-oculographic data obtained throughout the world by guiding both clinicians and manufacturers, and the ISCEV recommends that future published reports indicate whether the recording technique meets the international standard.
