The positioning and accommodation of eyes that allows the image to be brought into place on the FOVEA CENTRALIS of each eye.
An oval area in the retina, 3 to 5 mm in diameter, usually located temporal to the posterior pole of the eye and slightly below the level of the optic disk. It is characterized by the presence of a yellow pigment diffusely permeating the inner layers, contains the fovea centralis in its center, and provides the best phototropic visual acuity. It is devoid of retinal blood vessels, except in its periphery, and receives nourishment from the choriocapillaris of the choroid. (From Cline et al., Dictionary of Visual Science, 4th ed)
Clarity or sharpness of OCULAR VISION or the ability of the eye to see fine details. Visual acuity depends on the functions of RETINA, neuronal transmission, and the interpretative ability of the brain. Normal visual acuity is expressed as 20/20 indicating that one can see at 20 feet what should normally be seen at that distance. Visual acuity can also be influenced by brightness, color, and contrast.
Partial or complete loss of vision in one half of the visual field(s) of one or both eyes. Subtypes include altitudinal hemianopsia, characterized by a visual defect above or below the horizontal meridian of the visual field. Homonymous hemianopsia refers to a visual defect that affects both eyes equally, and occurs either to the left or right of the midline of the visual field. Binasal hemianopsia consists of loss of vision in the nasal hemifields of both eyes. Bitemporal hemianopsia is the bilateral loss of vision in the temporal fields. Quadrantanopsia refers to loss of vision in one quarter of the visual field in one or both eyes.
Degenerative changes in the RETINA usually of older adults which results in a loss of vision in the center of the visual field (the MACULA LUTEA) because of damage to the retina. It occurs in dry and wet forms.
Vision considered to be inferior to normal vision as represented by accepted standards of acuity, field of vision, or motility. Low vision generally refers to visual disorders that are caused by diseases that cannot be corrected by refraction (e.g., MACULAR DEGENERATION; RETINITIS PIGMENTOSA; DIABETIC RETINOPATHY, etc.).
Instruments used to observe distant objects.
An area approximately 1.5 millimeters in diameter within the macula lutea where the retina thins out greatly because of the oblique shifting of all layers except the pigment epithelium layer. It includes the sloping walls of the fovea (clivus) and contains a few rods in its periphery. In its center (foveola) are the cones most adapted to yield high visual acuity, each cone being connected to only one ganglion cell. (Cline et al., Dictionary of Visual Science, 4th ed)

Artificial device such as an externally-worn camera attached to a stimulator on the RETINA, OPTIC NERVE, or VISUAL CORTEX, intended to restore or amplify vision.
The X-shaped structure formed by the meeting of the two optic nerves. At the optic chiasm the fibers from the medial part of each retina cross to project to the other side of the brain while the lateral retinal fibers continue on the same side. As a result each half of the brain receives information about the contralateral visual field from both eyes.
Inflammation of the optic nerve. Commonly associated conditions include autoimmune disorders such as MULTIPLE SCLEROSIS, infections, and granulomatous diseases. Clinical features include retro-orbital pain that is aggravated by eye movement, loss of color vision, and contrast sensitivity that may progress to severe visual loss, an afferent pupillary defect (Marcus-Gunn pupil), and in some instances optic disc hyperemia and swelling. Inflammation may occur in the portion of the nerve within the globe (neuropapillitis or anterior optic neuritis) or the portion behind the globe (retrobulbar neuritis or posterior optic neuritis).
The 2nd cranial nerve which conveys visual information from the RETINA to the brain. The nerve carries the axons of the RETINAL GANGLION CELLS which sort at the OPTIC CHIASM and continue via the OPTIC TRACTS to the brain. The largest projection is to the lateral geniculate nuclei; other targets include the SUPERIOR COLLICULI and the SUPRACHIASMATIC NUCLEI. Though known as the second cranial nerve, it is considered part of the CENTRAL NERVOUS SYSTEM.

Filarial infection of the eyes transmitted from person to person by bites of Onchocerca volvulus-infected black flies. The microfilariae of Onchocerca are thus deposited beneath the skin. They migrate through various tissues including the eye. Those persons infected have impaired vision and up to 20% are blind. The incidence of eye lesions has been reported to be as high as 30% in Central America and parts of Africa.

Increased receptive field size in the surround of chronic lesions in the adult cat visual cortex. (1/253)

Visual cortical lesions destroy the target cells for geniculocortical fibers from a certain retinotopic region. This leads to a cortical scotoma. We have investigated the receptive fields of cells in the visual cortex before, 2 days and 2 months after focal ibotenic acid lesions in the adult cat visual cortex and have found signs of receptive field plasticity in the surroundings of the chronic but not the acute and subacute excitotoxic lesions. In the subacute state (first two days post lesion) receptive field sizes of cells at the border of the lesion were reduced in size or remained unchanged. Remapping of cortical receptive fields 2 months later revealed a number of cells with multifold enlarged receptive fields at the border of the lesion. The cells with enlarged receptive fields displayed orientation and direction selectivity like normal cells. The size increase appeared not specifically directed towards the scotoma; however, the enlarged receptive fields can reduce the extent of a cortical scotoma, since previously unresponsive regions of the visual field activate cortical cells at the border of the lesion. This late receptive field plasticity could serve as a mechanism for the filling-in of cortical scotomata observed in patients with visual cortex lesions.  (+info)

Reading with simulated scotomas: attending to the right is better than attending to the left. (2/253)

Persons with central field loss must learn to read using eccentric retina. To do this, most adopt a preferred retinal locus (PRL), which substitutes for the fovea. Patients who have central field loss due to age-related macular degeneration (AMD), most often adopt PRL adjacent to and to the left of their scotoma in visual field space. It has been hypothesized that this arrangement of PRL and scotoma would benefit reading. We tested this hypothesis by asking normally-sighted subjects to read with the left or right half of their visual field plus 3.2 degrees in the contralateral field masked from view. Letter identification, word identification, and reading were all slower when only the information in the left visual field was available. This was primarily due to the number of saccades required to successfully read to stimuli. These data imply that patients would be better off with PRL to the right of their scotoma than to the left for the purposes of reading.  (+info)

Reading with central field loss: number of letters masked is more important than the size of the mask in degrees. (3/253)

When the center of a readers, visual field is blocked from view, reading rates decline and eye movement patterns change. This is true whether the central visual field is blocked artificially (i.e. a mask) or through disease (e.g. a retinal scotoma due to macular degeneration). In past studies, when mask size was defined in terms of the number of letters masked from view, reading rates declined sharply as number of letters masked increased. Patients with larger central scotomas (in degrees of visual angle) also read slower. We sought to determine whether number of letters masked or size of the mask in degrees is the predominant factor affecting reading rates and eye movement behavior. By matching number of letters masked across several mask sizes (and compensating for reduced acuity in the periphery), we found that number of letters masked is the more important factor until mask size is quite large (> or = -7.5 degrees) and number of letters masked from view is more than seven.  (+info)

Combined use of several preferred retinal loci in patients with macular disorders when reading single words. (4/253)

To investigate the use of several preferred retinal loci (PRL) when attempting to read, two patients with bilateral central scotomas were asked to decipher single words, successively projected onto the retina using a scanning laser ophthalmoscope (SLO). Video-recordings of the fundus image, on which the projected targets were superimposed, were analyzed frame by frame. One patient used two PRL in association and the other used three, each PRL having a specific function. Single word reading made it easier than with full texts to correlate the images parts scrutinized and the retinal areas involved. Then, as patients were unable to describe their reading behavior, the examiner monitored refixation movements using the SLO and asked questions to help them to become aware of their reading behavior. Eventually, they could localize their PRL, describe their specific functions, and switch at will between them.  (+info)

Looking behind a pathological blind spot in human retina. (5/253)

Recent work suggests that dichoptic lateral interactions occur in the region of the visual field of one eye that corresponds to the physiological blind spot in the other eye (Tripathy, S. P., & Levi, D. M. (1994). The two-dimensional shape of spatial interaction zones in the parafovea. Vision Research, 34, 1127-1138.) Here we ask whether dichoptic lateral interactions occur in the region of the visual field of one eye that corresponds to a pathological blind spot, a retinal coloboma in the other eye. To address this question we had the observer report the orientation of a letter 'T' presented within this region in the presence of flanking 'T's presented to the other eye around the coloboma. A large drop in performance was seen due to the flanks, showing the existence of dichoptic lateral interactions in this monocular region. The presence of these dichoptic interactions in a region lacking direct retinal afferents from one eye is consistent with the proposition that long-range horizontal connections of the primary visual cortex mediate these interactions.  (+info)

Models for the description of angioscotomas. (6/253)

To describe small scotomas in visual field examinations several statistical models are proposed and applied to the evaluation of angioscotoma in 13 ophthalmologically normal subjects. A special perimetric grid is used where thresholds can be estimated along a line of narrow-spaced test points which crosses the predicted location of the retinal vessel. A two-stage analysis employs single estimations to fit a threshold curve by means of a special parametric description of the luminance difference sensitivity threshold as a function of stimulus position. An alternative model incorporates the threshold as a function of position into the probabilistic description of the binary response (stimulus seen/not seen).  (+info)

Angioscotoma detection with fundus-oriented perimetry. A study with dark and bright stimuli of different sizes. (7/253)

Fundus-oriented perimetry (FOP) was used to evaluate the effectiveness of different-sized bright and dark stimuli in detecting and quantitatively measuring angioscotoma. The foveolas and optic disks of digitized fundus images were aligned with their psychophysical counterparts to construct individual grids of perimetric stimuli. Each grid included a linear set of test point locations crossing a retinal vessel. Angioscotomas immediately became visible in nine of 13 healthy normal volunteers tested with FOP. Additional mathematical processing of local loss of differential light sensitivity (dls) disclosed an angioscotoma for at least one stimulus condition in all persons tested. The angioscomas were usually deeper for small (12) targets than for large (32') ones. On the other hand, the overall noise at dls thresholds was generally higher for small than for large stimuli regardless of whether the stimuli were bright or dark. No noteworthy differences were found in detection rates or signal-to-noise ratios under different stimulus conditions (dark/bright/small/large). FOP permits the individual arrangement of stimuli for specific morphological conditions and is thus capable of detecting even minute visual field defects such as angioscotomas.  (+info)

The "thin man" phenomenon: a sign of cortical plasticity following inferior homonymous paracentral scotomas. (8/253)

AIM: To investigate an image distortion, experienced by patients with homonymous paracentral scotomas. METHODS: Two consecutive patients with right inferior homonymous paracentral scotomas resulting from ischaemic brain insults were examined. Neuro-ophthalmological examination included tangent screen and Amsler grid evaluation. In addition, the patients were asked to describe a figure showing two vertical lines, identical in length and symmetrically located on either side of a fixation point. This figure was presented in such a way that when the subject looked at the fixation point the right line crossed the scotoma. Finally, the patients were asked whether, when looking at the face of an interlocutor, both sides of the body looked the same. RESULTS: In both patients field defects were markedly smaller when delineated with Amsler grids than using a tangent screen. With the parallel line test, the right line appeared uninterrupted in patient 1, whereas in patient 2 it looked slightly blurred in a two degree long segment corresponding to the middle of the scotoma. To both subjects the right line appeared shorter than the left line. Finally both subjects indicated that, after steadily fixating their interlocutor's face or neck for 5-10 seconds, the left shoulder appeared narrower than the right one, which made him look surprisingly thin. This perceptual alteration was called the "thin man" phenomenon. CONCLUSIONS: Paracentral homonymous scotomas can be associated with perceptual completion and shape distortion, owing to apparent displacement of images adjacent to the scotoma towards the field defect. Occurrence of such a perceptual change should alert one to the possibility of paracentral homonymous scotomas, which often go undetected when using routine visual field testing procedures.  (+info)

Macular ganglion cell asymmetry for detecting paracentral scotoma in early glaucoma Hsin-Yu Yang,1 Yu-Fan Chang,1,2 Chih-Chien Hsu,1,2 Yu-Chieh Ko,1-3 Catherine Jui-Ling Liu,1,3 Mei-Ju Chen1,3 1Department of Ophthalmology, Taipei Veterans General Hospital, Taipei, Taiwan; 2Institute of Clinical Medicine, National Yang-Ming University, Taipei, Taiwan; 3School of Medicine, National Yang-Ming University, Taipei, Taiwan Purpose: We evaluated macular ganglion cell asymmetry as a tool for diagnosing paracentral scotoma (PCS) in early glaucoma.Patients and methods: This prospective study compared 58 patients with early glaucoma and PCS to 58 age-matched control individuals. All glaucomatous eyes had scotoma within the central 12 degrees of fixation and confined to one hemifield. We measured circumpapillary retinal nerve fiber layer (cpRNFL) thickness, macular ganglion cell-inner plexiform layer (GCIPL) thickness, and optic nerve head (ONH) parameters with Cirrus spectral domain optical coherence tomography.
Example of the effect of the sequence of stimulation illustrated in Figure 22. The top trace is the average membrane potential in the cortical cell. Presentation of an artificial scotoma results in a depolarization of the cell, although this response adapts over a period of 30 seconds. Following this, presentation of a high contrast whole field sinewave grating results in a robust response that shows adaptation. Return to the artificial scotoma results in a marked hyperpolarization of the neuron. NOTE that the presentation of the identical visual stimulus, the artificial scotoma, results in either a strong depolarization of the cell, if it is presented after a gray screen, or a hyperpolarization of the neuron, if it is presented after strong stimulation of the neuron.. Mapping of the receptive field revealed a marked contraction following the whole field high contrast receptive field stimulation (bottom 3 maps) and an expansion following either a gray screen or an artificial scotoma.. ...
Common causes of scotomata include demyelinating disease such as multiple sclerosis (retrobulbar neuritis), toxic substances such as methyl alcohol, ethambutol and quinine, nutritional deficiencies, and vascular blockages either in the retina or in the optic nerve. Scintillating scotoma is a common visual aura in migraine.[1] Less common, but important because sometimes reversible or curable by surgery, are scotomata due to tumors such as those arising from the pituitary gland, which may compress the optic nerve or interfere with its blood supply. Rarely, scotomata are bilateral. One important variety of bilateral scotoma may occur when a pituitary tumour begins to compress the optic chiasm (as distinct from a single optic nerve) and produces a bi-temporal hemicentral scotomatous hemianopia. This type of visual field defect tends to be very eloquent symptom-wise but often evades early objective diagnosis, as it is more difficult to detect by cursory clinical examination than the classical or ...

Previous research has assessed self-reported difficulty of various ADLs in visually impaired observers, using item response theory to determine item difficulties for a number of different tasks.17 Higher (more positive) item difficulty indicates that respondent must have a higher level of functional ability to be able to complete the task.35 The item difficulty for pouring (+0.03 logits) indicates that it is perceived to be a harder task to complete than inserting a key in a lock (−0.09 logits) or seeing food on a plate (−0.20 logits).17 The three tasks examined objectively in our study showed significantly lower performance when compared with healthy subjects. In order to rate the difficulty of the task, we compare the percentage difference in time to complete each task between groups. This measure has been used in previous research to establish difficulty in carrying out tasks.15,18-21 Central visual field loss participants took twice as long (3.60 vs. 1.76 seconds) for the food on the ...
We investigated whether adults with healthy vision can move their eyes toward an informative target area that is initially hidden by a gaze-contingent scotoma in the periphery when they are under time pressure. In the experimental task, participants had to perform an object-comparison task requiring a same-different judgment about two silhouettes. One silhouette was visible, whereas the other was hidden under the scotoma. Despite time pressure and the presence of the visible silhouette, most participants were able to move their eyes toward the informative region to reveal the hidden silhouette. Saccades to the hidden stimulus occurred when the visible stimulus was presented directly opposite in either fixed or variable locations and when the visible stimulus was presented at an adjacent location. Older participants were also able to perform this task. First saccades in the direction of the hidden stimulus had longer latencies compared with saccades toward the visible stimulus. This suggests the ...

Noise field perimetry (NFP) is a technique that utilizes small black and white spots flickering randomly at high frequency (television static) to detect visual abnormalities in macular disease, and was previously shown to be more effective than Amsler grid (AG) in detecting diabetic macular edema. However, the Amsler grid (AG) continues to be the primary method for self-detection of central scotomas correlating to early progression of age related macular degeneration (AMD). We performed a cross-sectional clinical study to determine if NFP is an effective screening tool for detecting progression of AMD, and how it specifically compares with AG testing.. ...
Bioptics, improved something greater than 100 years back, are minor telescopes that are joined above the focal point of one spectacle lens. A slight descending tilt of the head and upward change of the eyes can carry a far off street mark or activity light into view for individuals with vision impedances. When looking through the telescope, a without vision dominion (scotoma) is made owed to the amplification of the telescope. The destitute of vision range is in the shape of a ring surrounding what is perceived through the telescope (consequently the name ring scotoma). Case in point, an individual review an activity light with the telescope can see the light, but should not see the surrounding crossing point, with the same eye. Admitting that bioptics were presented as driving supports 50 years in the past and are sanction for heading in 39 states, safeguard has remained a concern, specifically the impact of the ring scotoma on identification of activity risks. In some states this concern ...
To do: Fixate your gaze on the red dot, while paying attention to the solid grey circle (called an artificial scotoma. After a few seconds of steady fixation, the solid circle will fill in with the surrounding dynamic noise. Eye movements or blinks will cause the grey circle to reappear.. To notice: After the dynamic noise disappears (in 20 seconds), a powerful texture after-image takes the place originally occupied by the solid grey circle. This after-image may be dynamic: the so-called Twinkle effect (Ramachandran and Gregory, 1991) or static (Spillmann and Kurtenbach, 1992).. Dynamic filling-in occurs when eye movements are lacking or reduced. Our laboratory has showed that microsaccades (small involuntary eye movements that occur when we attempt to fixate) counteract visual fading and filling-in during visual fixation (Troncoso, Macknik and Martinez-Conde, 2008).. ...
Through massively parallel computational simulations, we studied how a large network of simple neural elements (the RF-LISSOM model) could develop a functional organization similar to that of the primary visual cortex. It was found that starting from a tabula rasa state, the afferent and lateral connections in the network self-organized cooperatively and simultaneously through a common Hebbian mechanism, and produced receptive fields (RFs), orientation maps, and patterns of lateral connections that follow the receptive field organization. Second, we hypothesized that similar self-organizing mechanisms continue operating in the adult cortex, maintaining it in a continuously-adapting dynamic equilibrium with the input, and tested this hypothesis on the self-organized model. When the equilibrium was perturbed by a retinal scotoma, RFs expanded in size in a reversible fashion, matching recent neurobiological observations in the cat and psychophysical experiments in the human. Third, a possible ...
Biettis crystalline dystrophy is a rare form of tapetoretinal degeneration associated with numerous glittering deposits on the retina of the posterior pole and in the limbic part of the cornea. The case of a patient with Biettis crystalline dystrophy followed-up for more than 5 years is described together with the changes seen during progression of the dystrophy. The patient was examined for the first time at the age of 27. At the last visit, marked impairment of night vision had developed, while there was no change in visual acuity. Ophthalmoscopic examination revealed that retinal crystals at the posterior pole were reduced in number, pigmented atrophy was more profound and that wide areas of choriocapillary atrophy had developed. There was a reduction in amplitude of the electroretinogram and the development of incomplete annular paracentral scotomas in the visual field. This case confirms that the symptoms of Biettis dystrophy develop late and that progression of the dystrophy involves atrophy of
Most MHs occur in eyes with no previous pathology (idiopathic). The patient generally complains of acute or subacute decrease in both far and near visual acuity (VA), ± metamorphopsia and/or micropsia, ± positive or negative scotoma. Five percent of patients are asymptomatic7. The visual loss caused by MH is variable. VA decreases gradually with time, and after several months of evolution it is usually around 0.1. In a series of unoperated MHs, more than 80% of eyes had a VA between 0.1 and 0.05 after 5 years of follow-up8. In practice, the VA of an eye with a full-thickness MH is usually less than 0.5 (typically 0.2). Patients rarely identify a central scotoma, but fairly frequently report what is indicative of a negative microscotoma (i.e. the disappearance of a letter from a word). The distortion or constriction of images and words is also reported.. At fundus biomicroscopy, the MH appears as a round full-thickness defect with sharp edges located at the center of the fovea. The size of ...
CAR and MAR are both rare paraneoplastic syndromes that can be distinguished by clinical symptoms, fundus characteristics, and electrophysiology findings. Small-cell lung cancer has been most frequently reported as the primary cancer in CAR; breast and endometrial cancers have also been reported but less frequently.(1) CAR typically presents with loss of central vision, reduced color vision, a ring scotoma, photopsias, and decreased a-wave and b-wave on ffERG.(2) MAR typically presents with rapid onset of photopsias, scotomata, decreased night vision, and variable loss of peripheral or paracentral vision.(3,4 ...
My feeling is that there is no filling in, at least not in the way its usually talked about, but rather that the scotoma is a scotoma in visual space period - if you dont see the space, you dont see any blankness, and you see the scene continue directly from one side to the other, not knowing any better. Maybe its hard to justify this intuition, but I think its similar to noting (as hemianopia patients do) that beyond the edges of the visual field, theres not an expanse of nothingness, but rather no expanse at all. If there is no expanse, there is no edge, so you get the strange condition of not being able to see the boundaries of your own visual field, because the boundary would have to be defined as between two expanses. With a proper mapping between visual direction and field location, you can be properly aware of the geometry of the visible field, without any need for it to be bounded. (Put another way, topologically, the space behind my head is equivalent to a hole in the visual field ...

The first one happened twelve years ago, just a couple of weeks after wed moved into our present home. I was sitting at the computer, transcribing a medical report, when I became aware of a shimmering circle with jagged edges in my visual field. Closing one eye or the other did not make it go away. The area that shimmered was a blind spot, about a letter or two wide. I waited for it to go away, but instead it got bigger over a twenty-minute period, and then vanished. I didnt mention it to anyone, but when it happened again a few weeks later while we were visiting relatives, I became concerned. Fortunately I had an ophthalmologic appointment scheduled ...

Retinal Migraine involves migraine headache associated with transient monocular visual loss (scotoma) lasting less than 1 hour.[1] During some episodes, the visual loss may occur with no headache and at other times throbbing headache on the same side of the head as the visual loss may occur, accompanied by severe light sensitivity and/or nausea. After each episode, normal vision returns.. It may be difficult to read and dangerous to drive a vehicle while retinal migraine symptoms are present.. Retinal migraine is a different disease than scintillating scotoma which is a visual anomaly caused by spreading depression in the occipital cortex, at the back of the brain, not in the eyes nor any component thereof, such as the retinas.[2]. ...
Purpose. There is currently a controversy about the conditions required for reorganization in human adults. Some studies describe large-scale human reorganization in human macular degeneration (MD) patients whereas others do not (Baker et al., 2005; Sunness et al., 2004). We explored the requirement for large-scale reorganization in human MD.. Methods. We report fMRI measurements from one JMD patient, who was diagnosed with binocular JMD thirteen years prior to the experiments. She has about a 40x50 degree diameter central absolute scotoma; she fixates using preferred retinal loci (PRL) in the left lower visual field. We also measured fMRI responses in three healthy control subjects using the same experimental setup and eccentric fixation. We used a wide array of visual stimuli that included faces, scrambled faces, moving gratings and checkerboards. Subjects either passively viewed the stimuli or performed a one-back task consisting of detecting consecutive repetitions of identical ...
Age-related macular degeneration (AMD or ARMD) is the leading cause of blindness in people 65 and older. As we age and our eye health begins to deteriorate, vision can be significantly compromised. In the case of AMD, deterioration of retinal tissue (macula) can impact our central vision and eventually create blind spots (also called scotomas). Basically, the older you get, the more likely you are to develop macular degeneration. Obviously, this can significantly affect our day-to-day living and habits. For example, blind spots in our central vision can be extremely dangerous when driving.. A 2015 study conducted by Harvard Medical School and Schepens Eye Research Institute, Massachusetts Eye and Ear, Boston, evaluated the effects such AMD issues could have on driving. Driving simulators were used to study the effect of visual blind spots on drivers ability to detect and react to potential dangers. The studys findings indicated that people with central vision blind spots (such as those ...
BROOKE SWEARINGEN, M.D.. A 30-year-old nulliparous woman presented to MGH at?34 weeks gestation with headaches and visual loss. She was referred by her ophthalmologist, who documented a bitemporal field defect with a dense left central scotoma. The visual?loss was progressive, and had worsened in the week prior to presentation. She had developed headaches three months prior to admission. The pregnancy was otherwise uncomplicated. Menses were normal before her pregnancy, and she had no history of galactorrhea, polyuria/polydipsia or other endocrine symptoms. Medical history was notable for a deep venous thrombosis three years ago, and she was being treated with low molecular weight heparin during the pregnancy. She had a history of primary hypothyroidism and had been maintained on 100 ?g of thyroxine daily for the past five years. She was otherwise healthy.. Read More ...
Microperimetry is an increasingly often used method of assessing the sensitivity of the central macula, analyzing fixation capabilities and loci, and accurately combining structural and functional information, even in the absence of stable fixation. Ongoing gene therapy trials have targeted the central retina, and utilized microperimetry as a main outcome measure for changes in retinal function. In retinal treatment planning, microperimetry has been used to assess the potential therapeutic window of opportunity. In the following pages, we briefly review the necessary steps to perform the Macular Integrity Assessment (MAIA) microperimetry.

A personal computer for a handicapped person includes an input panel that is subdivided into a group of fields, with one of the fields designated as a central field for the group. Each field is, in turn, subdivided into nine elements (spaces) comprised of a neutral central element surrounded by eight output elements. Each of those eight output elements has an output character representing a respective output signal. A mark (cursor) is moved across the panel by a control stick that is manipulated by a user. The cursor is always initially located at the center element of the central field. In order to move the cursor to a desired output element, the user: (a) identifies the field in which the desired output character is located, (b) moves the cursor in a first direction to the central element of that identified field, and (c) moves the cursor by one space directly to the desired output element in a second direction oriented either orthogonally or diagonally to the first direction.

Malte Urbschat is a German professional artist. In this piece, he has represented - among other migraine aura symptoms - phosphenes (sensing light when there isn't any light actually entering the eye) and scotomas (flickering light in the field of vision that obscures vision in that area). For...
Symptomatic suprageniculate lesions in multiple sclerosis expressed as a visual field defect are infrequent. The present case developed a bilateral homonymous defect as the initial and unique symptom of the disease. It was confirmed by nuclear magnetic resonance imaging, which disclosed extensive demyelinating areas in both optic nerve radiations. The mode of onset, perimetric findings, and unusual presentation of this condition are briefly discussed. ...
Many eye and brain disorders can cause peripheral vision loss and other visual field abnormalities. Visual field tests are performed by eye care professionals to detect blind spots (scotomas) and other visual field defects, which can be an early sign of these problems.. The size and shape of a scotoma offer important clues about the presence and severity of diseases of the eye, optic nerve and visual structures in the brain. For example, optic nerve damage caused by glaucoma creates a very specific visual field defect.. Other conditions associated with blind spots and other visual field defects include diseases of the retina, optic neuropathy, brain tumors and stroke.. ...

A 6 month follow up with clinical and imaging evaluation of a 18 year old female with medical history of simple myopia (-4.5) who arrived to the emergency room with a chief complaint of visual impairment in her left eye (OS) after a hair removal procedure was undergone with alexandrite laser (755 nm). The patient claimed that there was a shot to the air and immediately described a central scotoma in OS, which first improved. Four days later, she developed metamorphopsia in OS and both symptoms worsen. The physical examination showed best corrected visual acuity (BCVA) of 20/120 with a central scotoma. Fundus examination showed a submacular neovascular membrane along with haemorrhages. This findings were confirmed with swept source optical coherence tomography (OCT) and optical coherence tomography angiography (OCT-A) of the fovea. Ruling out other possible aetiologies, we ran serology tests that were negative for toxoplasma. The patient was treated with an intravitreal injection of ranibizumab 5 ...
TY - JOUR. T1 - Decreased fixation stability of the preferred retinal location in juvenile macular degeneration. AU - Bethlehem, R.A.. AU - Dumoulin, S.O.. AU - Dalmaijer, E.S.. AU - Smit, M.. AU - Berendschot, T.T.. AU - Nijboer, T.C.. AU - van der Stigchel, S.. PY - 2014/6/17. Y1 - 2014/6/17. N2 - Macular degeneration is the main cause for diminished visual acuity in the elderly. The juvenile form of macular degeneration has equally detrimental consequences on foveal vision. To compensate for loss of foveal vision most patients with macular degeneration adopt an eccentric preferred retinal location that takes over tasks normally performed by the healthy fovea. It is unclear however, whether the preferred retinal locus also develops properties typical for foveal vision. Here, we investigated whether the fixation characteristics of the preferred retinal locus resemble those of the healthy fovea. For this purpose, we used the fixation-offset paradigm and tracked eye-position using a high spatial ...
Marc Amsler was a student of Jules Gonin at the University of Lausanne and an exponent of Gonins ideas about retinal detachment repair. He succeeded Gonin in 1935 as chair of ophthalmology at Lausanne, and in 1944 became professor at the University of Zurich. He pioneered in the study of aqueous humor in uveitis and developed an interest in how to monitor macular symptoms in retinal disease. It seems likely that Amsler got the idea for his patterns from a small card with a grid pattern that Landolt designed to place in the center of his perimeter to test the macula. Several devices had been invented and manufactured by the first half of the 20th century for the testing of small macular scotomas, but these required an examiner to move tiny test objects across the grid, sometimes within a stereoscope for greater precision. These instruments were not so easy to use, and of course did not document metamorphopsia. Landolt may have intended to describe his test card in print, but he never did, and ...
Boston, MA - A study by scientists at Schepens Eye Research Institute shows that a bioptic telescope on one lens of a pair of glasses used to magnify traffic signs and lights may not prevent the wider view of the road with the second eye. The study results, which will be published in the May 2011 Archives of Ophthalmology, are the first evidence that-under more realistic viewing conditions than in earlier studies-the second eye can detect objects in the area obscured by the magnification effect of the telescope (called the ring scotoma ...

PIC is an idiopathic inflammatory disorder that typically occurs in young (15-55 years), white, myopic women. Presenting symptoms are blurred vision and scotomas with or without flashes of light.(2) The symptoms are usually unilateral, but most patients show bilateral fundus involvement.(2,3) PIC is characterized by multifocal choroidal lesions (yellow-white lesions of the inner choroid and retinal pigment epithelium of approximately 100-300 ìm in size), usually distributed throughout the posterior pole but sparing the peripapillary region.(2,4) There are no other signs of ocular inflammation elsewhere in the eye. Visual prognosis is generally good since the lesions usually evolve into atrophic scars; however, choroidal neovascularization may develop in 17% to 40% of patients, potentially threatening central vision if untreated.(4-7 ...

Following cataract surgery, patients can present with a variety of visual complaints-i.e., dysphotopsias, aberrant optical phenomena that interfere with vision after IOL implantation. Positive dysphotopsias include rainbows, streaks, crescents, rings, halos, and veiling glare, haze, and fog. Negative dysphotopsias are relative and absolute scotomas, said Jack T. Holladay, MD, from Baylor College of Medicine, Houston.
2 Biologic Description. Side effects requiring immediate medical attention. Adverse reactions to Adenosine of any severity reported in less than 1% of patients include: back discomfort, lower extremity discomfort, weakness, myocardial infarction, ventricular arrhythmia, third-degree AV block, bradycardia, palpitation, sinus exit block, sinus pause, T-wave changes, hypertension (systolic blood pressure > 200 mm Hg), drowsiness, emotional instability, tremors, blurred vision, dry mouth, ear discomfort, metallic taste, nasal congestion, scotomas, tongue discomfort. 1. Since Adenosine significantly increases blood flow in normal coronary arteries with little or no increase in stenotic arteries, Adenosine causes relatively less thallium-201 uptake in vascular territories supplied by stenotic coronary arteries i.e., a greater difference is seen after Adenosine between areas served by normal and areas served by stenotic vessels than is seen prior to Adenosine. Do not use in patients with ...

  • This condition begins as a spot of flickering light near or in the center of the visual field that can prevent vision within the scotoma area. (treatheadaches.com)
  • How easy is it, then, to find information, particularly if that information is presented at a location in the visual field that is hidden by an artificial scotoma? (arvojournals.org)
  • Foreign bodies or opacities in the cornea, lens, vitreous (Fig. 281), or outer layers of the retina may be attended by obscuration of vision through optic hindrance, and cause amblyopia, contraction of the visual field, and scotoma. (operatingmicroscopes.com)
  • The Academy's Vision Rehabilitation: Preferred Practice Pattern ( PPP ) recommends referral when corrected acuity is less than 20/40 in the better eye or when there is impaired contrast sensitivity, visual field loss, or a scotoma. (aao.org)
  • Every normal mammalian eye has a scotoma in its field of vision, usually termed its blind spot. (wikipedia.org)
  • A scotoma may include and enlarge the normal blind spot. (wikipedia.org)
  • Scintillating scotomas are blind spots that flicker and waver between light and dark. (healthline.com)
  • Vision remains normal beyond the borders of the expanding scotoma(s), with objects melting into the scotoma area background similarly to the physiological blind spot, which means that objects may be seen better by not looking directly at them in the early stages when the spot is in or near the center. (wikipedia.org)
  • The presence of this normal scotoma does not intrude into consciousness because it is very small, but it can be demonstrated to oneself by the simplest of clinical methods (such as the one in the blind spot article). (wikidoc.org)
  • ICD-9 code 368.42 for Scotoma of blind spot area is a medical classification as listed by WHO under the range -DISORDERS OF THE EYE AND ADNEXA (360-379). (aapc.com)
  • Most of the time, unless it's a massive blind spot or there are multiple Scotomas clustered in the same area, the degeneration of the eyesight in that particular area can be completely unnoticeable. (protect-your-eyesight.com)
  • 11. Scotomata, a group characterized by formation of scotomata or blind spots in one or both eyes, in some instances having a hemianopic aspect. (operatingmicroscopes.com)
  • The natural blind spot (scotoma) is due to lack of receptors (rods or cones) where the optic nerve and blood vessels leave the eye. (scholarpedia.org)
  • In the absence of a lesion, visual stimulation surrounding an artificial scotoma did not elicit visual responses, suggesting that the postlesion RF shifts resulted from cortical reorganization. (jneurosci.org)
  • To examine the level of agreement between the EVFT and IVF for patients with binocular paracentral scotomata, caused by either ophthalmological or neurological conditions, and to compare outcomes with useful field of view (UFOV) performance, a test of visual attention thought to be important in driving. (nih.gov)
  • 60 patients with binocular paracentral scotomata but normal visual acuity (VA) were recruited prospectively. (nih.gov)
  • Here we address this question by studying whether healthy adults can make saccades in the direction of an invisible, artificial, gaze-contingent scotoma that is presented in the periphery. (arvojournals.org)
  • Overall, 7/17 (41%) suspect eyes (95% confidence interval 5/17 (29%) to 7/17 (41%)) had nasal scotomata on HSRP, although their HFA 24-2 fields failed to identify any defects. (bmj.com)
  • In 12 these coexisted with HFA 24-2 defects at the same location, while in three eyes only HSRP identified scotomata in the nasal field. (bmj.com)
  • We investigated whether adults with healthy vision can move their eyes toward an informative target area that is initially hidden by a gaze-contingent scotoma in the periphery when they are under time pressure. (arvojournals.org)
  • A scotoma is an area of partial alteration in the field of vision consisting of a partially diminished or entirely degenerated visual acuity that is surrounded by a field of normal - or relatively well-preserved - vision. (wikipedia.org)
  • As the scotoma area expands, some people perceive only a bright flickering area that obstructs normal vision, while others describe seeing various patterns. (wikipedia.org)
  • A 62-yr-old man developed a scotoma in the vision of the right eye during chiropractic treatment. (chiro.org)
  • Peripheral Scotomas affect a person's peripheral vision, and may cover it up altogether. (protect-your-eyesight.com)
  • Scotoma in the medical field is a concealed region in the field of vision. (treatheadaches.com)
  • There is evidence for both, under various conditions, giving scotomata and 'filling in' surprising importance for understanding the physiology and psychology of vision. (scholarpedia.org)
  • Improvement in the function of different layers of the retina and optic nerve were experienced as well as a reduction in the number of scotomas in the field of vision. (prweb.com)
  • A ring or donut shaped scotoma is an area of reduced vision that forms a shape similar to a ring or donut - the patient can see fine in the center and off-center a little bit but then there is an area of reduced vision followed by another area or normal vision. (noaa.gov)
  • Less common, but important because they are sometimes reversible or curable by surgery, are scotomata due to tumors such as those arising from the pituitary gland, which may compress the optic nerve or interfere with its blood supply. (wikipedia.org)
  • The scotoma affects both eyes and closing one or the other does not make it go away. (blogspot.com)
