A visual evoked potential test (VEP) is used to look for problems in the brain that affect vision. A machine records brain waves related to the nerves that make up the visual pathway.
Reasons for Test
This test is often used to:
- Diagnose and follow multiple sclerosis (MS)
- Test vision in children and adults who are unable to read eye charts
There are many symptoms that might lead your doctor to order a VEP. You may be having double vision, blurred vision, or loss of part or all of your vision.
There are no major complications associated with this procedure.
