Temporal function in age-related maculopathy
We have measured sensitivity to temporal change in red light in elderly patients with ARM and in normals in the same age group, and find depressed temporal function across a wide range of temporal frequencies. In patients with macular drusen and pigmentary changes but normal visual acuity, temporal function does not appear to be significantly depressed, although there is a suggestion of loss of sensitivity for medium temporal frequencies at the fovea.
