Contrast sensitivity in central and paracentral retina in age-related maculopathy
Contrast sensitivity functions were measured in age related maculopathy (ARM) patients and age matched controls, in the central retina and 2 degrees, 5 degrees and 10 degrees in the paracentral retina. There was an overall loss of sensitivity in the ARM patients, both at the fovea and paracentrally, indicating that high and low spatial frequency mechanisms are affected and that the sensory loss is not confined to the fovea. This is in accord with our recent findings on low contrast acuity, dark adaptation and reaction time.
Impact and interest:
Citation counts are sourced monthly from and citation databases.
These databases contain citations from different subsets of available publications and different time periods and thus the citation count from each is usually different. Some works are not in either database and no count is displayed. Scopus includes citations from articles published in 1996 onwards, and Web of Science® generally from 1980 onwards.
Citations counts from theindexing service can be viewed at the linked Google Scholar™ search.
