Visual evoked potentials (VEPs) can be used in a multitude of ways to assess the various levels of visual processing. The human visual system consists of multiple, parallel channels which process different information, and each channel constitutes a set of sequential processes. An algorithm of sequential steps that can be used to assess visual function is reviewed. The pathophysiology of retinal, anterior visual pathways and retrochiasmal pathways can be objectively evaluated by VEPs.
