Abstract

Abstract only

Subjects in this stiudy were classified into one of three groups, age related maculopathy (ARM) pre-age related maculopathy (PARM) and age-matched contraols. we measured glare recovery time, contrast threshold, colour discrimination (using the desaturated version of D-15 colour vision test), Amsler charts (conventional and at threshold) and questioned subjects regarding adaption difficulties. Those subjects designated as ARM and PARM, show significantly worse perfomance than age-matched norma;s on glare timre, contrast threshols and colour discrimination. They also report a greater incidence of subjective adaption difficulties in their daily lives. Total glare recovery time significantly correlated with contrast threshold, color discrimination loss, pressence of pigmentary disturbance at the macula, subjective adaption difficulties at at night and visual acuity loss. Glare recovery measurements in subjects with age related masulopathy provide a sensitive indicator of functional change which correlate well with many other clinical measures.

Impact and interest:

Citation countsare sourced monthly from Scopus and Web of Science® 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 the Google Scholar™ indexing service can be viewed at the linked Google Scholar™ search.
