Predictive value of visual evoked potentials, relative afferent pupillary defect, and orbital fractures in patients with traumatic optic neuropathy

Clinical Ophthalmology, 08/15/2011

Patients with traumatic optic neuropathy often present with severe vision loss. Flash visual–evoked potentials (VEP), poor initial visual acuity, and higher grade of relative afferent pupillary defect could predict final visual acuity in these patients. Presence of orbital fracture was not a predictive factor for primary visual acuity or final visual acuity.
