White Plains ERG Testing For Eye Strain, Neurological Ocular Issues Expanded
The practice hopes this new expansion will encourage more White Plains residents struggling with regular eye strain to schedule a comprehensive consultation at the clinic. Patients will undergo an initial comprehensive eye exam so their optometrist can develop a full understanding of their optical health. If eye strain is a concern, White Plains Eye Care can issue an Electroretinography (ERG) test to determine the patient’s overall retinal function and identify any neurological ocular issues.

With this expansion, White Plains Eye Care offers patients struggling with chronic eye strain a non-invasive testing option to determine the underlying causal condition. For ERG testing, the practice uses LKC’s RetEval machine which detects functional stress in the optic nerve, retina, and nerve pathways to the brain.
Various conditions can cause neurological ocular issues, including primary glaucomatous optic nerve disease, optic neuritis, and ischemic optic neuropathy. Since these conditions can worsen over time and cause permanent visual impairments, White Plains Eye Care advises seeking comprehensive testing. Early diagnosis and treatment of neurological optical problems can prevent these conditions from developing and protect against vision deterioration.
With the LKC RetEval device, White Plains Eye Care can typically diagnose and manage functional changes to a patient’s visual system before they result in structural changes. After a diagnosis is made, White Plains optometrists will work with patients to develop a personalized treatment plan according to their optical health and goals.
