The use of multifocal electroretinography in the assessment of retinal toxicity caused by pharmacological agents
Multifocal electroretinography has found a role in the detection of ocular drug toxicity over the past 15 years. This review summarises how multifocal electroretino- graphy has been used to evaluate the retinal toxicity caused by various ocular as well as systemic pharmaco- logical agents. The use of multifocal electroretinography for monitoring the recovery of retinal function after with- drawal of the offending drugs is explored, as is the use of this technique to assess the efficacy of strategies to reduce retinal drug toxicity. Further developments in multifocal electroretinography to improve the detection of retinal toxicity in the future are also discussed.
