PURPOSE: Fundus autofluorescence (FAF), as an index of lipofuscin accumulation in the retinal pigment epithelium (RPE), provides indirect information on the level of metabolic activity of the RPE and thus the integrity of the RPE/photoreceptor complex. To investigate whether the photoreceptor/RPE complex is still viable in patients with Leber congenital amaurosis (LCA), FAF imaging was performed. METHODS: Three patients with LCA (patients A, B, and C; ages, 24, 15, and 37 years, respectively...Expand abstract
