The electro-oculogram in human retinal detachment.
  1. L. A. Lobes


    Thirteen patients with retinal detachment and surgical reattachment were studied with preoperative and multiple postoperative electro-oculograms. The light rise was reduced to a mean of 1.17 with detachment but recovered in 77% to a 1.87 ratio, the equivalent of the control eye. This recovery was complete within 66 days in 80% of patients who eventually did return to normal. This rapid recovery parallels the rapid return of anatomical, biochemical, and electrophysiological function demonstrated in experimental detachment.
