Diopsys VEP

DIOPSYS® – Visual Evoked Potentials

KEC announces the addition of the Diopsys® NOVA-VEP Vision Testing System to the practice.  The new vision testing system helps the doctors to detect vision deficits, including glaucoma and other neuro-visual disorders earlier than traditional vision tests because it uses Visual Evoked Potentials (VEP) technology and proprietary software to evaluate the entire vision system from the eye to the visual cortex.  This test also allows the doctors to manage and monitor a wide variety of ocular and systemic conditions with greater ease and accuracy.

The Diopsys® NOVA-VEP records the electrical response of a patient’s entire vision system and provides easy-to-read reports that give the doctor a simple way to evaluate optic nerve function.  Physicians are able to compare tests over time to track disease progression.  This test does not rely on a patient’s response so the results are not affected by the ability of a patient to perform a test.  This is a big advantage for the practitioner in determining the validity of the test information.
