Eighteen sets of electroretinograms (ERGs) were recorded from ten patients who had been patched for various periods for the treatment of amblyopia. In all cases, the amplitude of the b-wave was smaller in the patched eye. The depression of the b-wave was temporary and recovery occurred after the patching was discontinued.
