Measurement of the distribution of macular pigment

Measurement of the distribution of macular pigment

With the improved fundus images, it will be possible to measure the distribution of macular pigment (Tornow, Laemmer et al. 2007), (Budai, Hornegger et al. 2010). This is important for clinical and basic research in age related macular degeneration.
