Assessment and evaluation of visual function measurement in inherited retinal degeneration; focusing on optimisation

Abstract:

Photoreceptors at the back of the eye are the first step in producing our sense of vision, able to capture photons of light of differing wavelength. These connect to retinal circuits, which feed into visual pathways and networks in the brain, where the responses from the eye are processed to provide rich visual perception. Loss of these photoreceptors leads to severe visual impairment, as light can no longer be detected. While degeneration has a direct effect on the photoreceptors, there a...
