Fundus autoflorescence (FAF) is a new investigational tool used to identify lipofuscin distribution in the retinal pigment epithelium (RPE) cell monolayer. It has recently been used to analyze age-related macular degeneration, central serous chorioretinopathy, retina telangiectasia and diffuse and macula retina dystrophies. Our study reports its use to evaluate two different patterns of presentation in optic disc pit related maculopathy, and findings suggest that FAF as an investigational tool can give valuable information for evaluation of the RPE – photoreceptor complex and the metabolic condition of RPE in this disorder.
