1. Correlation of visual function impairment and OCT findings in patients with Stargardt disease and fundus flavimaculatus.

    PURPOSE. To investigate the relationship between morphologic lesions of the retina and functional abnormalities in patients with Stargardt disease (STGD) and fundus flavimaculatus (FFM). DESIGN. Case-controlled, prospective, comparative observational study. METHODS. A complete ophthalmologic examination, including best-corrected visual acuity (BCVA) and optical coherence tomography (OCT), was performed in 61 eyes of 32 consecutive patients with STGD/FFM and in 60 eyes of 30 matched healthy control subjects. Furthermore, fundus-related perimetry was performed in 12 of the affected eyes. RESULTS. The age ranged from 21 to 71 years in STGD/FFM patients and from 21 to 72 years in controls. BCVA ...
