Abstract

Capillary blood velocity remained unchanged regardless of presence of visual impairment, whereas foveal avascular zone and perifoveal intercapillary area indicated ischemia. This may help in defining a critical hypoxic threshold for visual loss and identifying the presence of an ischemic diabetic maculopathy.
