In the industrialized world age-related macular degeneration (ARMD) is the leading cause for legal blindness beyond the age of 65 years. Recent studies indicate that the density of the macular pigment (MP) may play a central role in the development and progression of age-related maculopathy (ARM). We present results of measurements of macular pigment density (MPD) with a modified confocal scanning laser ophthalmoscope and compare macular pigment density values obtained from reflectance and… CONTINUE READING
