Question

Because Video-ENG does not rely on the corneoretinal potential for recording, is it possible to perform Video ENG on blind patients?

Answer

VNG is not going to help if the patient cannot foveate a target. However, if the patient is blind and able to foveate a target, and if the corneoretinal potential is too low to permit a quality ENG recording, then, I have found VNG to be superior. In our clinic we have established a normative data pool for a gross estimate of the corneoretinal potential strength. The value can be obtained by choosing ''Review calibration'' from the ICS Master menu. The value represents an estimate of the CRP required for +/- 10 degrees of calibration. As this value drops below 100 uV/10 degrees the quality of the recordings decreases precipitously and I begin to reach for VNG. In effect, the ICS system is automatically increasing the gain of the amplifiers to its limits and you begin to see noise floor (everything looks fuzzy). We are now looking at this value as a predictor of (primarily) retinal disease.
