The aim of this study was to assess inner retinal function in patients with Best's disease using the pattern ERG (PERG). Nine patients with Best's disease, who had good visual acuity, were studied. Five of the nine had abnormal PERGs. All five had some reduction in central visual acuity. We believe that the abnormal PERGs in these patients represents photoreceptor cell loss which is occurring at an early stage in Best's disease.
