The pupils should be dilated and light flashes presented full-field to the entire ret ina. A bowl sim ilar to that of a perimeter is used to illuminate the ent ire retina. Signals are evoked either by a Single fla sh or by repetitive flashes (with computer averaging if des ired). To record light-adapted (photopic) ERGs, a unifo rm background light is projected withi n the bowl. It is im portant diagnostically, espeCiall y in evaluating hereditary and other retinal degenerations, to test the rod and cone systems separately.

Thus, the EOG is not a useful test for most disorders in which the retina itself is significantly damaged; it is most specific for involvement of the RPE when other studi es have shown the reti na to be normal. The relationsh ip of the EOG to physiologic functions of the RPE is unclear because it does not correlate closely with either pigmen tary changes in the RPE or visual function. For example, the EOG light-dark ratio is normal or only mildly subnormal in some di seases (eg, diffuse fundus flavi maculatus or pattern dystrophy) in which the RPE seems to be primarily invo lved.
