Early Treatment Diabetic Retinopathy Study (ETDRS) charts, which test visual acuity, as well as multimodal imaging with OCT and autofluorescence assess visual function and retinal morphology to accurately monitor disease progression. Visual-field testing should be performed at the initial assessment but has low clinical significance in advanced disease. In addition, it may cause significant stress in patients.
Electrophysiologic testing is useful when the diagnosis of IRD is suspected but has yet to be clinically confirmed.
