Ultra-Widefield Multifocal Electroretinography and Visual Evoked Potentials
Retina Specialists Northwest is proud to announce the implementation of Diagnosys Ultra-Widefield Multifocal Electroretinography (mfERG) and Visual Evoked Potentials (VEP) as part of our service. This diagnostic tool can significantly benefit those with retinal and optic nerve disease.
Retina Specialists Northwest has invested in elevating the level of care in the Puget Sound area by providing a valuable service that had previously been unavailable in our community.
The mfERG can objectively assess cone dysfunction and macular disease facilitating diagnosis and assessment of progression of macular disorders such as Retinal Dystrophy, ARMD, Diabetic Retinopathy and Drug Toxicity. The AAO has listed mfERG as a critical test modality for screening for Plaquenil Toxicity.
VEP can assess optic nerve function, improving the diagnosis and management of Optic Neuritis and Optic Neuropathy. This is particularly useful in Multiple Sclerosis.
Our Federal Way office will provide this service at your patients' convenience.
