Comfortable Electrodes for the Eyes
The ERG-Jet, manufactured by Fabrinal SA, and distributed in the US and Canada by The Electrode Store, is a disposable contact lens electrode used for performing an electroretinogram (ERG) procedure. Essentially, Electroretinograpy measures the eye’s neural/electrical responses to a series of flashing lights to determine whether the retina has a disorder. Often, ERGs are done as a screen to determine if cataract or retinal surgery would be beneficial or not.
The ERG-Jet is packaged and sold by the pair, or in a box of 25 pairs. It is inexpensive, comfortable, small (12 mm diameter and just a few angstroms thick), and has a 7.90 mm radius of curvature, a gold-poly surface, and neutral optical quality. Pre-sterilized and intended for single-use only, the ERG Jet comes with a 27” attached lead wire with a standard 1.5 mm plug.
Not just for people: In addition to the thousands of ophthalmologists who perform ERGs on humans, there are also hundreds of veterinary ophthalmologists who now use ERG as a tool to help restore or improve the vision of dogs, horses, cats, and even birds!
The ERG-Jet has been a key part of the transforming improvements we have seen in the field of ophthalmology in the past quarter-century.
