Combined measurement of visual acuity and contrast sensitivity in patients with juvenile macular degeneration
Gandolfo E., Rossi Brunori P., Morescalchi F., Zinzini E., Moreni S., Musig A.
The authors present the results of a combined evaluation of residual visual acuity and sensibility to contrast using the test performed by evaluation of visual capabilities in patients affected by juvenile macular degeneration, in order to show/prove the relationship between the effective patient's performance in reading and standard indexes. Data have been introduced in a calibrated framework in order to evaluate che reduction rate of contrast area. Twenty-eight patients has been examined (12 males and 16 females). The average age was 29.4; 20 patients (71.4%) were affected by myopic macular degeneration, 5 (17.9%) by Stargardt's syndrome, 1 (3.5%) by Best's maculopathy and 2 (7.2%) by Bull's eye maculopathy.
