Corneal electrodes useful for clinical electroretinography require topical anesthesia, interfere with vision, can abrade, and are not well accepted by most children and many adults. A low mass conductive thread, corneal (DTL) electrode is described and comparatively tested against the Burian-Allen electrode. The DTL electrode was found to have few of the limitations of the hard contact lens electrode. Furthermore, the DTL electrode signal quality was comparable to that of the Burian-Allen electrode and provided less between-patient variability.
