An electroretinography (ERG) device is a remarkable tool that helps clinicians understand the health of the retina. As an objective measure of electrical responses within the retina, ERG is crucial for understanding how the retina is functioning, with multiple applications across the continuum of care.
ERG is not disease specific. It is an objective measure of retinal function that is useful for building a differential diagnosis in patients with confounding or conflicting clinical findings and for those with unexplained visual changes. The information that ERG uncovers can be crucial in deciding when and if to initiate appropriate treatment, how aggressively to treat, and whether or not additional treatment is likely to have benefits.
