AIM The cause of vascular and visual pathology in diabetic retinopathy remains unknown. If retinal hypoxia plays a role, then early in the course of diabetes 100% oxygen breathing should normalise both contrast sensitivity and retinal blood flow. METHODS This hypothesis was tested in 12 diabetic patients with minimal retinopathy who, none the less, exhibited reduced contrast sensitivity (p = 0.003 versus 12 age and sex-matched controls) and prolonged retinal arteriovenous dye transit (p = 0… CONTINUE READING
