Abstract Details


Comparative non-invasive evaluation of macula blood flow changes in diabetes mellitus.

Setting: Clinical and Research Eye Institute, Athens, Greece


We evaluated 95 consecutive patients with known diabetes mellitus. Both eyes of each case were imaged with the angioflow software of the AngioVue Imaging System (Optovue, Fremont, CA). Correlation of the capillary macula plexus was made in regard to the years of clinical diagnosis and HbA1C levels.


6 of the 95 cases showed significant macula capillary angioflow changes that correlated closely with HbA1C levels over 8% and over 5 years of clinical diagnosis. There was one case with uneven contralateral eye findings


Vascular macula flow pathology was evident in routine evaluation of diabetics with this non-invasive vascular flow study. These data may caution clinicians in the prognosis of diabetic retinopathy.
