Committee for the Quality Assurance of Sensory Physiological Examination Methods and Devices

Since 1994, the DOG-Committee “Quality Assurance in Sensory Physiological Examination Methods and and Devices” has been working on guidelines to standardize the procedure for sensory physiological examinations and the technical standards of the devices used for this purpose, especially intended for the German-speaking region. This is intended to ensure high-quality, high-value examination techniques and comparability of the findings they contain throughout the health care area of ophthalmology in Germany. The committee has summarized the guidelines, some of which are based on very complex and detailed national and international standards, in a concise form and thus tried to implement them in a realistic way. The first edition of these recommendations has already been published in the journal “Der Ophthalmologe” 94:836-862 (1997).
