Newly announced electroretinography (ERG) tests at Westchester Eyes are used to detect a range of optical conditions, such as macular degeneration, retinal diseases, cone-rod dystrophy, and retinal separation. The practice uses the LKC RetEval device for its ERG testing, which allows it to detect functional stress in the retina, optic nerve, and nerve pathways to the brain.

With this announcement, Westchester Eyes offers patients suffering from light sensitivity, blurred or distorted vision, or lost vision, a non-invasive diagnostic method. Using LKC’s RetEval device, the practice can detect signs of disease, degeneration, or damage early on so that patients can seek proper treatment to prevent further deterioration.
Photophobia, or light sensitivity, can be a symptom of a range of conditions, from dry eyes to retinal detachment to glaucoma, says the practice. Because of this, the most effective treatment can vary greatly from patient to patient. Westchester Eyes’ highly sensitive ERG test measures the electrical response of the eye’s light-sensitive cells to determine the underlying cause of a patient’s symptoms and create a specific treatment plan from there.
The LKC RetEval device features patented sensor strip skin electrodes, meaning no corneal electrode is required. Westchester Eyes can incorporate ERG testing into a patient’s comprehensive eye exam or can issue it as a stand-alone service for patients with more acute symptoms or concerns.
Westchester Eyes is home to a large team of certified optometrists, all of whom have extensive clinical experience treating ocular and retinal diseases, including macular degeneration and diabetic retinopathy.
“Several things make our business special. First, we have an incredible team and the comradery in the office is evident to patients,” said Dr. Eric Rubinfeld, the practice’s primary optometrist. “The other thing is we’re invested heavily in technology, both diagnostic and therapeutic. This allows our doctors to do a deep dive into the patient’s health.”
