Howells, Olivia, Eperjesi, Frank and Bartlett, Hannah (2011). Measuring macular pigment optical density in vivo:a review of techniques. Graefe's Archive for Clinical and Experimental Ophthalmology, 249 (3), pp. 315-347.


Macular pigment has been the focus of much attention in recent years, as a potential modifiable risk factor for age-related macular degeneration. This interest has been heightened by the ability to measure macular pigment optical density (MPOD) in vivo.
