PURPOSE To evaluate the effect of age on the density of retinal photoreceptors in humans. METHODS Fifty-five normal eyes from human donors, with a mean age of 58.7 +/- 19.1 years and an axial length of less than 27 mm, were examined. After opening of the globes by a 16-mm corneoscleral trephination, 25 retinal tissue samples were obtained in four meridians. The photoreceptors were counted on photographs taken from the photoreceptor inner segments after sonographic removal of the outer… CONTINUE READING
