​​Since Apaeros can image these attributes, the system has enabled various investigative studies, specifically:

  • - Increasing severity of Diabetic Retinopathy associated with decrease in cone regularity

  • - Diabetic Macular Edema associated with cone mosaic changes, cone reflectance and decreased regularity of cone spacing ​

  • - Photoreceptor disruption in Diabetic Macular Ischemia

Instrument Functions: Measures of Cone Physiology
