    Vitrectomy was performed bilaterally in pigmented rabbits and followed by silicone oil injection in one eye only. Electroretinographic studies were performed preoperatively and at selected postoperative intervals. In the early postoperative period both eyes showed an initial reduction in a and b wave amplitudes, followed by a return to baseline values. The amplitudes were symmetrically and equally affected. Sequential studies over a 20-month period showed no deterioration in electroretinographic response in eyes with and without silicone oil injection.
