Abnormal Cambridge low-contrast grating sensitivity results associated with diabetic retinopathy as a potential screening tool Abrishami, M.; Heravian, J.; Derakhshan, A.; Mousavi, M.; Banaee, T.; Daneshvar, R.; Moghaddam, H.O. (2007)Contrast sensitivity is proposed as a potential screening tool for the early detection of diabetic retinopathy. A cross-sectional study was performed in a tertiary referral university eye centre. A total of 80 diabetes patients were recruited and tests were performed on 154 eyes.

Abnormal contrast sensitivity was observed in 27.1% of eyes with diabetic retinopathy, compared with 9.0% in unaffected eyes, a statistically significant difference. Cambridge low-contrast grating is ...
