Abstract

Currently the different techniques used to study ocular blood flow, do not allow its exact detection, but only a morphological evaluation of the eye artero-venous system. Acquisition of morphological and velocimetric data, at the same time, allows a more exact evaluation of the pathology. Therefore the ecd is a simple rapid and non-invasive approach, useful in the acquisition of important data concerning diagnostic confirmation, prognosis, and above all pharmacological follow-up of many pathologies such as diabetes, glaucoma and arterial hypertension. The diagnosed vascular alterations are correlated to the degree retinopathy and to the effectiveness of the pharmacological treatment.
