Medical Definition of Electroretinography

1. In this test an electrode is placed on the cornea of the eye to measure the electrical response of the rods and cones in the retina. It is useful in the evaluation of hereditary and acquired disorders of the retina. A normal test will show the appropriate pattern responses during moments of increased light intensity. Abnormal results can indicate arteriosclerosis of the retina, retinal detachment, temporal arteritis (with eye involvement) or vitamin A deficiency. (27 Sep 1997)
