Visual Evoked Potential

Checks the pathway from the eye to the brain. Electrodes are placed onto the scalp. You are seated in front of a screen and asked to stare at the center. One eye is covered while the other eye is tested. The stimulus is given, which is usually a checkerboard pattern, that quickly reverses color. A computer records the results. Total time is usually about one hour.
