Central serous chorioretinopathy produces macular pigment profile changes.

PURPOSE Macular pigment (MP) is the collective name for three isomeric carotenoids: lutein, zeaxanthin, and meso-zeaxanthin. Macular pigment density is greatest in the central retina, peaking at the fovea and falling to negligible levels at 7 degrees of eccentricity from the fovea. Several studies have documented the interocular symmetry of MP optical… CONTINUE READING
