BACKGROUND Abnormalities in rod and cone photoreceptor morphology have been reported in normal aging retinas in the absence of known pathology and have been taken as an indicator of susceptibility to retinal disease. Some loss of visual performance may therefore precede retinal structural changes that can be detected reliably using conventional fundus imaging techniques. Red/green (RG) and yellow/blue (YB) colour discrimination thresholds are sensitive measures of normal retinal function and… CONTINUE READING
