Abstract

Although few data have been published on this topic, microperimetry should be considered a specific and sensitive tool for screening patients who are taking potentially toxic medication. The comparison with other functional exams and the integration of the results is helpful in the early diagnosis of retinal damage, as well as in the follow-up of these patients. Microperimetry is not yet considered a routine procedure in the management of toxic retinopathies, but the information obtained are essential to ensure a tailored decision about the need to discontinue the drug preventing permanent vision loss.
