The aberrantly vascularized peripheral retina in retinopathy of prematurity (ROP) may be associated with visual field constriction, retinal dysfunction, and abnormalities in retinal thickness which is commonly assessed by spectral domain optical coherence tomography (SDOCT). However, due to the limitation of SDOCT for peripheral retinal imaging, retinal(More)
PURPOSE Retinal hypoxia is a common pathological condition usually caused by ischemia that may result in alterations in oxidative energy metabolism. We report measurements of oxygen delivery by the retinal circulation (DO2_IR) and inner retinal oxygen metabolism (MO2_IR) under systemic normoxia and hypoxia in rat. METHODS Rats were ventilated with(More)
PURPOSE The purpose of the study is to report global measurements of inner retinal oxygen delivery (DO2_IR) and oxygen metabolism (MO2_IR) in streptozotocin (STZ) diabetic rats. METHODS Phosphorescence lifetime and blood flow imaging were performed in rats 4 (STZ/4 wk; n = 10) and 6 (STZ/6 wk; n = 10) weeks following injection of STZ to measure retinal(More)
PURPOSE Oxygenation abnormalities are implicated in the development of retinopathy of prematurity (ROP). The purpose of this study is to report in vivo retinal vascular oxygen tension (PO2) measurements and fluorescein angiography (FA) findings in the mouse model of oxygen-induced retinopathy (OIR). METHODS We exposed 19 neonatal mice to 77% oxygen from(More)
Vascular endothelial growth factor (VEGF) is stimulated by hypoxia and plays an important role in pathologic vascular leakage and neovascularization. Increased VEGF may affect inner retinal oxygen delivery (DO2) and oxygen metabolism (MO2), however, quantitative information is lacking. We tested the hypotheses that VEGF increases DO2, but does not alter(More)
