PURPOSE: To develop consensus terminology and criteria for defining atrophy based on OCT findings in the setting of age-related macular degeneration (AMD). DESIGN: Consensus meeting. PARTICIPANTS: Panel of retina specialists, image reading center experts, retinal histologists, and optics engineers. METHODS: As part of the Classification of Atrophy Meetings (CAM) program, an international group of experts surveyed the existing literature, performed a masked analysis of longitudinal multimodal imaging for a series of eyes with AMD, and reviewed the results of this analysis to define areas of agreement and disagreement...

DESIGN: Observational case series. PARTICIPANTS: One hundred thirty-one preterm infants undergoing retinopathy of prematurity (ROP) screenings. METHODS: Handheld OCT imaging was performed longitudinally on all patients...

PURPOSE: Age-related macular degeneration (AMD), a multifactorial disease with variable phenotypic presentation, was associated with 52 single nucleotide polymorphisms (SNPs) at 34 loci in a genome-wide association study (GWAS). These genetic variants could modulate different biological pathways involved in AMD, contributing to phenotypic variability. To better understand the effects of these SNPs, we performed a deep phenotype association study (DeePAS) in the Age-Related Eye Disease Study 2 (AREDS2), followed by replication using AREDS participants, to identify genotype associations with AMD and non-AMD ocular and systemic phenotypes...

PURPOSE: To test the hypothesis that normal-tension glaucoma (NTG) is caused by an increased pressure difference across the lamina cribrosa (LC) related to a low intracranial pressure (ICP). DESIGN: Prospective case-control study. PARTICIPANTS: Thirteen NTG patients (9 women; median 71 [range: 56-83] years) were recruited for investigation with the same protocol as 11 healthy volunteers (8 women; 47 [30-59] years). A larger control group (n = 51; 30 women; 68 [30-81] years) was used only for ICP comparison in supine position...

REVIEW

Geographic atrophy (GA) is an advanced form of age-related macular degeneration (AMD) that leads to progressive and irreversible loss of visual function. Geographic atrophy is defined by the presence of sharply demarcated atrophic lesions of the outer retina, resulting from loss of photoreceptors, retinal pigment epithelium (RPE), and underlying choriocapillaris. These lesions typically appear first in the perifoveal macula, initially sparing the foveal center, and over time often expand and coalesce to include the fovea...
