Visual Evoked Potentials

Visual evoked potentials are sometimes used to aid in the diagnosis of MS. It is a noninvasive test that measures how long it takes for signals to travel from the eyes to the brain. The test can reveal demyelination of the optic nerves that is too subtle to be detected during a routine neurological exam.
