1. Correlation of Visual Function Impairment and Optical Coherence Tomography Findings in Patients with Adult-Onset Foveomacular Vitelliform Macular Dystrophy

    PurposeTo investigate the relationship between morphologic and functional abnormalities in patients affected with adult-onset foveomacular vitelliform macular dystrophy (AFVD).DesignProspective, noncomparative observational study.MethodsA complete ophthalmologic examination, including best-corrected visual acuity (BCVA), fundus examination, fundus-related perimetry, and optical coherence tomography (OCT), was performed in 20 consecutive AFVD patients. The stage of the disease and the thickness of the neuroepithelium at the foveola (neurosensory retina) were compared with the BCVA as well as with the type of scotoma, the average retinal sensitivity, and the location and stability of fixation.ResultsThirty-five eyes of 20 consecutive patients (10 men and 10 women; mean ...
