    Evaluation of ischemic diabetic maculopathy with Fourier-domain optical coherence tomography and microperimetry

    Objective To evaluate the efficacy of high-speed Fourier-domain optical coherence tomography (FD-OCT) and fundus microperimetry (MP-1) in identifying the anatomic and functional features of ischemic diabetic maculopathy. Design Prospective noninterventional study. Participants Forty-two consecutive eyes (23 patients) with ischemic diabetic maculopathy and 40 normal eyes (25 control subjects) were included in this study. Methods Best corrected visual acuity, ganglion cell complex (GCC) thickness measured with FD-OCT, and central light sensitivity recorded with MP-1 were evaluated. Results GCC thickness and light sensitivity were significantly reduced in all affected eyes versus control eyes. logMAR BVCA was significantly correlated with mean macular sensitivity ...
