Abstract

Purpose: The aims of the study were to detect early changes in the optic nerve function of patients with Graves' orbitopathy (GrO) who do not have any signs and symptoms of optic neuropathy, using pattern visual evoked potentials (P-VEP), and investigate any possible relation between the disease activity and P-VEP P100 latencies of the patient group.
