Abstract

This study investigated the variation in density of macular pigment across the central retina in normal and albino subjects. Luminance profiles were measured using a fundus camera and digital video techniques. The normal group had pigment spatial distributions consistent with previous studies. The albinos had no variation in absorbance across the central retina.
