I am interested in medical retinal diseases, and particularly their investigation using visual electrophysiology. Visual electrophysiology measures very small electrical signals in the eye (electroretinogram) and brain (visual evoked potential) and can assist in diagnosis of some disorders of the retinal and optic nerve. I am also interested in progress in medical science and am able to offer some of my patients participation in clinical trials. – A/Prof Heather Mack
Visual electrophysiology testing is offered by A/Prof Mack at East Melbourne.
