Suitability and repeatability of a photostress recovery test device, the macular test device, macular degeneration TEST DEVICE, detector (MDD-2), for diabetes and diabetic retinopathy assessmentLoughman, James; Ratzlaff, Matthew; Foerg, Brittany; Connell, Paul; *Department of Optometry, School of Physics, College of Sciences and Health, Dublin Institute of Technology, Dublin, Ireland; †African Vision Research Institute, Faculty of Health Sciences, University of KwaZulu Natal, Durban, South Africa; and ‡Department of Ophthalmology, Mater Misericordiae University Hospital, Dublin, Ireland. (2013-10-16)Diabetic retinopathy can result in impaired photostress recovery time despite normal visual acuity and fundoscopic appearance. The Macular Degeneration Detector (MDD-2) is a novel flash photostress recovery time device. In this study, we examine the repeatability of the MDD-2 in normal and diabetic subjects.
