The fast oscillation of the electrooculogram reveals sensitivity of the human outer retina/retinal pigment epithelium to glucose level.

The effect of acute blood glucose elevations on human outer retinal function was examined. Electrooculograms were recorded as the background light cycled on/off with a 2-min period, eliciting rapid changes in the corneo-retinal standing potential known as the fast-oscillation of the electrooculogram. Recordings were made while subjects fasted and after they consumed 100 g of D-glucose. In all subjects, blood glucose levels strongly affected fast oscillation amplitude, which reflects photoreceptor-driven changes in RPE cell chloride concentration. The sensitivity of RPE metabolism to glucose fluctuations may relate to changes in the blood-retinal barrier that are known to occur in diabetes (e.g. macular edema).[1]
