EVOKE-VEP Glaucoma Study

Enrollment Status

Open Enrollment

Objective

The EVOKE-VEP is a standard testing device to measure vision through high and low contrast imagine for optic vision assessment and pattern electroretinography.  NOVA-VEP (FP) stands for Neuro Optic Vision Assessment Systems and uses a technology called visual evoked potential to measure your response to a visual stimulus. 

Visual Evoked Potentials (VEP) clinical benefits provide objective, quantitative information about the functional integrity of discrete visual pathways in a non-invasive manner. This is new information that is complementary to the structural analysis obtained from technologies such as OCT and Fundus photography, and augments subjective information from standard visual acuity and perimetry. Electroretinograms (ERG) reflect the integrity of the optics, photoreceptors, bipolar cells and retinal ganglion cells. Clinically, ERGs may be useful when patients have abnormal VEPs to differentiate between retinal dysfunction occurring in the optic nerve, optic radiations and occipital cortex.

This test is a non-invasive and assesses your vision. Three gold electrode stickers will be placed on your head and you will be asked to look at a computer screen with changing checkerboards for a few minutes. The total test time takes about thirty minutes.
