Diabetic Retinopathy and Visual Function Study

2014-08-27 03:59:39 | BioPortfolio

Summary

The purpose of this study is to evaluate possible mechanisms of central visual loss in patients with diabetes mellitus. The visual loss of interest to be investigated is that associated with macular edema (prior to and following laser photocoagulation treatment) and that associated with panretinal photocoagulation. The evaluation will be performed with psychophysical testing, i.e., static perimetry and contrast sensitivity function. Of particular interest, the mechanisms of visual loss associated with macular edema (prior to and following laser photocoagulation) will be further investigated. Photoreceptor-mediated visual loss will be assessed by measurements of the Stiles-Crawford effect. Visual loss mediated by post-receptoral retinal changes will be assessed by measuring the Westheimer spatial desensitization/sensitization effect.

Aneurysm of the MICROVASCULATURE. Charcot–Bouchard aneurysms are aneurysms of the brain vasculature which is a common cause of CEREBRAL HEMORRHAGE. Retinal microaneurysm is an early diagnostic sign of DIABETIC RETINOPATHY.

Vision considered to be inferior to normal vision as represented by accepted standards of acuity, field of vision, or motility. Low vision generally refers to visual disorders that are caused by diseases that cannot be corrected by refraction (e.g., MACULAR DEGENERATION; RETINITIS PIGMENTOSA; DIABETIC RETINOPATHY, etc.).
