PURPOSE Alcohol produces changes in the electro-oculogram (EOG) similar to those caused by light, but indirect evidence indicates that alcohol directly affects the retinal pigment epithelium (RPE). An investigation of the alcohol-induced increase (termed the alcohol rise in this study) in patients with disease of the photoreceptors was therefore of interest. METHODS Standard EOGs were recorded after oral administration of alcohol in a group of patients with retinitis pigmentosa (RP… CONTINUE READING
