Wearable diagnostic system for retinal disease

A compact Electroretinography (ERG) device embodied in a pair of goggles with electrodes built into the the device to monitor electrical function of the eye. The system can fully cover both eyes allowing dark adaptation to occur in a controlled manner under a variety of settings (e.g., in a lighted or partially lighted room), allowing the technician to work and conduct testing while the room remains illuminated. The system can be used without the need for a dark room. The system can screen for DR using a prescribed flash protocol to probe for pathways that are affected in Diabetic retinopathy, negating the need for bulky and time-consuming conventional ERG systems. Data is automatically processed and analyzed to provide diagnostic information.
