Pilot Study of OCT Angiography versus Fluorescein Angiography in assessing Retinal Perfusion in Diabetic Macular Edema
The purpose of this study is to see if a device being developed here at OHSU is as effective at diagnosing eye problems in diabetes patients as an already approved device.
The study population is patients with diabetes experiencing symptoms of diabetic macular edema (DME).
Current diagnosis of type I or II diabetes.
Presence of diabetic macular edema (in at least one eye).
Media clarity, pupillary dilation and subject cooperation sufficient for adequate fundus imaging (in at least one eye).
No currently pregnant, lactating, or intending on becoming pregnant within the next 12 months following participation.
18 - 100
Healthy Volunteers Needed
Duration of Participation
Most subjects will be able to have all study procedures done on one day. The exception would be if the subject's time runs short and they need to come back to the clinic for one of the diagnostic procedures.
