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.
