    Functional optical coherence tomography of retinal photoreceptors

    Age-related macular degeneration (AMD) is the leading cause of severe vision loss and legal blindness. It is known that retinal photoreceptors are the primary target of AMD. Therefore, a reliable method for objective assessment of photoreceptor function is needed for early detection and reliable treatment evaluation of AMD and other eye diseases such as retinitis pigmentosa that are known to cause photoreceptor dysfunctions. Stimulus-evoked intrinsic optical signal (IOS) changes promise a unique opportunity for objective assessment of physiological function of retinal photoreceptor and inner neurons. Instead of a comprehensive review, this mini-review is to provide a brief summary of our ...
