Arlene Drack, MD, presented a poster on data collected and analyzed over the past several years on multifocal ERG in patients with albinism. The poster generated excellent discussions with researchers from around the world with the unexpected and interesting finding that many albinism patients have a normal central multifocal ERG electrical spike despite having no visible fovea on OCT. This suggests that the cause of visual impairment in albinism patients is more posterior in the visual system, knowledge that is important to developing methods of improving vision in patients.
