    Abstract : Age-related macular degeneration (AMD) is one of the leading causes of severe visual loss among persons ≥ 60 years. AMD can be categorized in one of three stages: early, intermediate, or late. In early AMD visual symptoms are inconspicuous whereas, in the late stage, severe loss of vision is common. Late AMD has dry and wet forms. READ MORE

    Abstract : Best macular dystrophy (BMD) is an autosomal dominant inherited eye disease with a juvenile onset. Accumulation of the pigment lipofuscin in the retinal pigment epithelium can later cause macular degeneration and loss of vision. READ MORE

  4. 4. Age-related maculopathy and macular degeneration : New diagnostic and therapeutic procedures

    University dissertation from Linköping : Linköpings universitet

    Author : Christina Frennesson; Linköpings universitet.; Linköpings universitet.; [1996]
    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; MEDICINE; MEDICIN;

    Abstract : Age-related maculopathy (ARM) may progress into age-related macular degeneration (AMD), which is often disastrous to near vision and reading. Currently used treatment is generally not successful in a long-term perspective. Therefore, searching for an early detection of functional disturbances as well as for prophylactic treatment appears important. READ MORE

  5. 5. Retinal pigment epithelial cells, oxidative stress and lipofuscin : relation to age-related macular degeneration

    University dissertation from Linköping : Linköpings universitet
