Chromatic pupillometry as a novel means to assess outer retinal function in health and disease states
Acta Ophthalmologica, 08/08/2012
Kawasaki A – This post–illumination response is abnormal in patients with glaucoma. In patients with retinal degenerative disease, the retinal sensitivity to blue light as measured by pupillometry is reduced. This correlates with loss of rod function but also hints at reduced melanopsin activity. Clinical examples showing pupil response to red and blue light in patients with neuroretinal visual loss will be discussed.
