    Retinal pathology on optical coherence tomography among eyes of older adults judged normal by color fundus photography

    Purpose Optical coherence tomography (OCT) has revealed many details of retinal disease that were not available with older imaging technologies. In eyes of adults >60 years old with normal maculas as determined by color fundus photography (CFP) and a validated grading system, we screened for pathology using OCT. We also tested visual functions to assess potential impact of the observed pathologies on patients. Design cross-sectional study Participants This study recruited persons from primary ophthalmology care clinics. METHODS: CFP were assessed by the 9-step AREDS scale. OCT macular volumes of participants at step 1 on the AREDS scale, considered normal, were ...
