Glare recovery and age related maculopathy
Summary -1. We investigated the dynamics of the glare recovery in a group of subjects with age related maculopathy (ARM), those with pre-age related maculopathy (PARM) and age matched controls pre-age related maculopathy subjects were distinguished as those with pigmentary disturbance at the macula, but still retainning 6/6 visiual acuity.
Glare recovery is significantly prolonged in both age related maculopathy and pre-age related maculopathy groups in comparison with the controls. This delay in glare recovery extended to approx. 6 times that the controls in the case of pre-age related maculopathy subjects and 16 times that of the controls for age related maculopathy subjects. Contrast thresholds wre raised in both the age related maculopathy and pre-age related maculopathy group compared with the controls. Total glare recovery times were correlated with contrast thresholds.
The measurement of glare recovery is a sensitive indicator of early functional loss in the retina of subjects with early ARM and those thought to be risk of developing ARM.
Impact and interest:
Citation countsare sourced monthly fromand 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.
