Ocular Electrophysiology encompasses a complex series of tests that are not part of routine clinical practice.  They can however provide critical clinical information in the diagnosis and management of a range of ocular conditions and presentations.  As a result, it is important that optometrists are:

1) Aware of the range of tests that are available and what parts of the visual system they test

2) Have an understanding of when it is appropriate to refer for them

3) Have a basic understanding of the results.

The first half of this presentation covers these points with the second half providing case studies to show how the theory can be applied to clinical practice.

Learning Objectives

By the end of this presentation, participants will have

1)      An improved understanding of the role of electrophysiology for optometric practice

2)      Enhanced knowledge of the role and interpretation of ocular electrophysiology tests

3)      An increased ability to utilise electrophysiology in the management of their patients
