To investigate the use of several preferred retinal loci (PRL) when attempting to read, two patients with bilateral central scotomas were asked to decipher single words, successively projected onto the retina using a scanning laser ophthalmoscope (SLO). Video-recordings of the fundus image, on which the projected targets were superimposed, were analyzed(More)
AIMS To investigate the reading strategy of a patient with central scotoma, using several preferred retinal loci (PRL). METHODS A 47 year old man with Stargardt's disease was asked to decipher texts projected onto his retina using a scanning laser ophthalmoscope. A recording of the fundus image, on which the projected texts were superimposed, was analysed(More)
BACKGROUND Oculomotor behaviour was investigated in 14 patients with central scotomas from age related macular degeneration (AMD) or Stargardt's disease. A scanning laser ophthalmoscope (SLO) was used to project letters and words onto the retina and to assess fixation behaviour. Five patients reported while deciphering letters that they needed to "move(More)
