  • Structure/function endpoints for AMD should be motivated by the pathobiology of the disease. RMDA has a strong history in outer retina neurophysiology and psychophysics
  • Using z-scores to standardize vision measures – greatest difference between visual function in normal and intermediate AMD eyes
  • Delayed rod-mediated dark adaptation in normal eyes doubles the risk for incident AMD
