Purpose. To assess nerve conduction in visual pathways in patients with open-angle glaucoma. Methods. Pattern-electroretinograms (PERG) and visual- evoked potentials (VEP) were simultaneously recorded in 16 patients with open-angle glaucoma (POAG) and 15 age-matched controls. The visual stimuli were checker-board patterns (the check edges subtend 15'; the contrast was 70% and reversed at the rate of 2 reversals/s). Results, POAG patients showed significantly higher PERG and VEP latencies (ANOVA: P
