Magnetic Fields of the Eye

Abstract

The electric sources that produce the electro-oculogram (EOG) and the electroretinogram (ERG) of the human eye are fairly well known. They are situated in the retina of the eye. The magnitudes, orientations, and even the distributions of these sources can be influenced by external lighting conditions. This makes the magnetic counterparts of the electric fields of the eye — the ocular magnetic fields — especially interesting for biomagnetic studies.
