Systematic Assessment of Clinical Methods to Diagnose and Monitor Diabetic Retinal Neuropathy.

J Ophthalmol 2018 13;2018:8479850. Epub 2018 Dec 13.

Faculty of Medicine, Greenslopes Clinical School, University of Queensland, Brisbane, Australia.

Purpose: Diabetic retinal neuropathy refers to retinal neural tissue damage occurring before the structural retinal changes of diabetic retinopathy and fulfils many of the criteria for causality for the subsequent vasculopathy. Developing reliable means of measuring neuronal damage in diabetes may be important in efforts to prevent retinopathy of a clinically significant and irreversible stage. This study aimed at systematically assessing current clinical measurements of diabetic retinal neuropathy so that future studies may utilise a consensual battery of tests in studying this poorly understood disease state between a healthy retina and one that is retinopathic.
