Abstract

The clinical and visual evoked potential (VEP) findings were analysed in 18 patients with anterior ischaemic optic neuropathy. The VEP studies showed a variety of abnormalities which could be interpreted as being the result of subcomponent interaction consequent upon loss or attenuation of the normal macular-derived P100 component. Delay of normal VEP subcomponents was not seen. The VEP findings were non-specific but pointed to a severe disturbance of transmission in optic nerve fibres subserving central vision. No significant changes were observed with time in most cases indicating a static monophasic process with no significant recovery.
