This session covers the underlying physiological changes measured by electro-oculography (EOG), clinical indications, how the test is carried out and the interpretation of an EOG report.


By the end of this session you will be able to:
• Describe the underlying physiological changes measured by the EOG

Dorothy Thompson
on behalf of Health Education England

Dorothy is an optometrist with a PhD in pattern electroretinography. She had Leverhulme and Welcome Trust research fellowships, the latter using brain mapping of visual evoked potentials to explore specialised cortical visual areas. She then moved to a clinical research role within the Ophthalmology Department of Great Ormond Street Hospital, London and currently works there as a Consultant Clinical Scientist in the eponymously named Tony Kriss Unit specialising in Clinical Paediatric Visual Electrophysiology. Her clinical research studies use visual electrophysiology to better understand the mechanisms of visual dysfunction, especially retinal dysfunction, associated with systemic, metabolic, neuromuscular or genetic disease. She was awarded the Gilles Van Colle Research Excellence award in 2013 for work in paediatric metabolic disease by the College of Optometrists and in 2014 awarded the inaugural ISCEV Marmor award for innovation with colleagues for the use of the Electroretinogram in Autism. In 2016 she became a Fellow of the European Academy of Optometry and Optics for education and research work developing children’s clinical eye services.

Dorothy is an Honorary Senior Lecturer, ICH/UCL, London . She is a founder member and current Chair of BriSCEV, the professional body of visual electrophysiology in the UK and Director of Education of ISCEV the International Society for Clinical Electrophysiology of Vision. She is a section editor of Eye and reviewer for many ophthalmological journals.
