Abstract

Purpose To prospectively analyse microperimetry, standard short-wavelength fundus autofluorescent (SWFAF) and near infrared-wavelength FAF (NIR-FAF) changes in eyes with geographic atrophy (GA) secondary to age-related macular degeneration. Methods Twenty consecutive eyes (14 patients) affected by GA were enrolled. Repeated microperimetric examinations and FAF images were obtained over a mean follow-up period of 12.3±4.5 months. Results GA area was always wider on NIR-FAF versus SW-FAF images (5.05±2.40 mm2 vs 4.45±2.41 mm2, p=0.005 baseline; 5.78±2.87 mm 2 vs 5.21±2.77 mm2, p
