PURPOSE To investigate if retinal blood flow decreases with progression of the disease in Abyssinian cats with progressive retinal atrophy (PRA), to examine if the choroidal blood flow was affected by the disease, and to determine the uptake of glucose and formation of lactate in the outer retina. METHODS Local blood flow in different parts of the eye was determined with radioactive microspheres, in 9 normal cats and in 10 cats at different stages of PRA. Three blood flow determinations were… CONTINUE READING
