Presentation Description :
This talk will examine the development of the fovea viewed through modern techniques including spectral domain optical coherence tomography and examine changes in the retinal structure up to adulthood. Current research on foveation steps starting at twenty-two weeks gestation from creation of the rod-free zone through photoreceptor migration to development of the foveal pit. Ultimately ending in an adult like fovea at 45 months postpartum. Examples improper foveal development will be shown such as in retinopathy of prematurity. Afterwards, examining changes in retinal thickness with emmetropization will be looked at. Ultimately leading to an adult fovea structure that will be examined using adaptive optics.
This is an abstract that was submitted for the 2016 ARVO Annual Meeting, held in Seattle, Wash., May 1-5, 2016.
