ARVO Poster

April 2022

Retinal specialist Philip J Rosenfeld, MD from Bascom Palmer Institute presented his poster at the annual meeting for The Association for Research in Vision and Ophthalmology (ARVO) in New Orleans, LA. These results are part of an ongoing prospective study demonstrating visual acuity in normal eyes, AMD eyes with drusen, and AMD eyes with non-foveal GA correlate with decreased perfusion (blood flow) of the choriocapillaris. Normal luminance VA (normal vision), low luminance VA (dim light vision), and the low luminance deficit (the difference between normal and dim light vision) all correlate with the choroidal choriocapillaris perfusion. This is an ongoing study which provides the missing link between decreased choriocapillaris perfusion and visual function.
