Measuring macular pigment optical density in vivo: a review of techniques

Research output: Contribution to journalArticle

Abstract

Macular pigment has been the focus of much attention in recent years, as a potential modifiable risk factor for age-related macular degeneration. This interest has been heightened by the ability to measure macular pigment optical density (MPOD) in vivo.
