Abstract

Purpose. Macular Pigment (MP) is composed of two dietary carotenoids, lutein and zeaxanthin, and a carotenoid generated by the retina, meso-zeaxanthin. There is large intersubject variability in peak optical density, spatial profile, and lateral extent of macular pigment, and it has been suggested that foveal architecture may play a role in in this variability. This study is an initial investigation of the relationship between the spatial profile of macular pigment and foveal architecture.
