Changes in retinal photosensitivity in diabetic retinopathy therapy
Diabetic retinopathy leads to damage to the neurosensory apparatus of the retina. Already in the nonproliferative stage of DR, the photosensitivity of the retina decreases. Scotomas appear, respectively, of hard exudates, cotton wool spots and retinal hemorrhages. Treatment should aim at improving retinal feeding and function. Therefore, the effectiveness of treatment can be assessed by changing the retinal photosensitivity of using computer perimetry.
Steps to reproduce
Retinal photosensitivity was determined using Octopus visual field analyzer (Interzeag AG, Switzerland), at baseline, day 10, and months 1, 3, and 6 during the study.
