Abstracts
A B S T R A C T
On a small island of Rab, geographical latitude 44°40' N, with the highest solar radiation among Adriatic islands,
1371 patients were examined in 2003–2005 period, with the aim of estimating the frequency of the patients number with
Age-related Macular Degeneration (AMD), and further if the peripheral retina is damaged similarly as the macular region.
In the first group of agriculturists and fishermen (n=1300) we estimated the AMD, initial and middle stage of
AMD, in 18% of population, but in urban population only by 2 patients. Perimetric analysis with computerized Kowa perimeter,
estimated that the peripheral retina is affected similarly as the macular region. Author concludes that for this
reason, the usual term of »Age-related Macular Degeneration« should necessarily be named with the suffix »Peripheral«,
or »Age-related Retinopathy«.

Keywords
