Review of the association between retinal microvascular characteristics and eye disease
MetadataShow full item record
Computerized retinal imaging technologies enable the static and dynamic measurement of a range of retinal microvascular parameters. Large population‐based studies have reported associations between these microvascular indices and various ophthalmic diseases including diabetes, age‐related macular degeneration, retinal artery embolism, retinal vein occlusion, glaucoma and non‐glaucomatous optic neuropathies. Increasingly, sophisticated imaging and analysis techniques have the potential to provide relevant clinical information regarding disease risk and progression; however, further studies are required to verify associations and strengthen the predictive power of these techniques. We summarize the current state of knowledge regarding retinal microvascular characteristics and eye disease.
