This website might help you work out your result.  If you look at the section:
Visually evoked potentials:  when are they clinically useful?"

My extremely amateur interpretation is that your VEP is saying there is an abnormality that could 'possibly' have been caused by something like the demyelination / optic neuritis.  I stress that this is an amateur interpretation though.
