Extract

The fovea is a highly specialized macular region with a unique microanatomy that represents the area of greatest visual acuity. The fovea mainly consists of different structures that are highly dependent on multilayered capillary plexa for metabolic exchanges. Perifoveal capillary arcade disruption, enlargement of the foveal avascular zone, and reduction of foveal capillary density evaluated with fluorescein angiography (FA) have been negatively correlated with visual acuity, suggesting that they might be useful in evaluating foveal health status.1
