The influence of ethambutol on retinal function was studied by recording ganglion cell responses in isolated carp retinas superfused with a Ringer solution containing different concentrations of ethambutol (0 mg/liter, 10 mg/liter, 20 mg/liter, 30 mg/liter). The results indicate that ethambutol reversibly affects color opponency, without changing the sensitivity of the underlying receptor processes. The amacrine and bipolar cells are the most likely candidates to be affected by ethambutol.
