Reduction of Retinal Sensitivity in Eyes With Reticular Pseudodrusen – Corrected Proof

Purpose: To evaluate the effect of macular reticular pseudodrusen on retinal function using multiple imaging methods.Design: Prospective cross-sectional study.Methods: Thirteen eyes with reticular pseudodrusen, but without any other macular abnormality or glaucoma, and 20 normal eyes were evaluated. All subjects underwent color fundus photography, infrared reflectance (IR), fundus autofluorescence (FAF), and microperimetry.Results: The similarity in the number of reticular pseudodrusen was evaluated through inter-observer intraclass correlation coefficients, which ranged from 0.852-0.944. IR could detect reticular pseudodrusen within the center circle area in 12 eyes, whereas blue-channel fundus photography and FAF could only detect these lesions in 1 and 3 eyes, (Read more...)
