Temporal function in age-related maculopathy

Brown, Brian & Lovie-Kitchin, Jan E. (1987) Temporal function in age-related maculopathy. Clinical and Experimental Optometry, 70(4), pp. 112-116.


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.

Citation counts are 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.
