Description:

Purpose: To investigate the relationship between visual function and severity of early age-related maculardegeneration (AMD) and activity of neovascular (nv-) AMD.Methods: The following data was collected from 66 eyes of 66 subjects with early AMD and 47 eyes of 47subjects with active nv-AMD: corrected distance visual acuity (CDVA); contrast sensitivity (CS); glare disability (GD);and retinotopic ocular sensitivity (ROS) of the central 5° of the retina, by microperimetry. Fundus photographicgrading of early AMD was performed in a masked fashion. Mean foveal thickness (MFT) was measured by spectraldomain optical coherence tomography in patients with nv-AMD.
