Angioscotometry with the scanning laser ophthalmoscope. Comparison of the effect of different wavelengths.
PURPOSE Angioscotomas are scotomata caused by vessel shadows. Their extent may be influenced by physiological and pharmacologic conditions and disease. In this study, the authors quantifiedExpand

Objective measurement of contrast sensitivity and visual acuity with the steady-state visual evoked potential.
Since the appearance of Campbell and Maffei's and Harter and White's reports it has been well established that the visual evoked potential (VEP) can be used to predict psychophysical contrastExpand

Protein C, protein S, and antithrombin III in acute ocular occlusive diseases.
Hereditary and acquired deficiencies of protein C, protein S, and antithrombin III are important risk factors of thrombosis, especially in peripheral veins. In a prospective study, concentrations ofExpand

Perifoveal microcirculation with non-insulin-dependent diabetes mellitus
Fluorescein angiograms were performed to evaluate perifoveal capillary blood velocities (v), capillary density (perifoveal intercapillary areas: PIA) and the foveal avascular zone (FAZ) by means ofExpand
