43 Possible Causes for Foveal Reflex Absent

  • Progressive Retinal Dystrophy due to Retinol Transport Defect

    Jean L. Bolognia, Joseph L. Jorizzo, Julie V. Schaffer Elsevier Health Sciences, 8 Jun 2012 - Medical - 2776 pages Dermatology, edited by world authorities Jean L. Bolognia, MD, Joseph L. Jorizzo, MD, and Julie V. Schaffer, MD, is an all-encompassing medical reference book that puts the latest practices in dermatologic[…][]

  • Photoretinitis

    Retinoscopy showed foveal reflex absent in both eyes, macular edema more on his right eye than on his left.[] Small, yellowish-white spot in the center of foveal region surrounded by an area of faint, grey, and granular pigmentation seen in both eyes [Figure 1] and [Figure 2].[]

  • Non-Syndromic Ocular Stickler Syndrome Type 1 

    Characteristically, the foveal reflex is absent or grayish in color. Pigmentary spots sometimes develop in the macular area and may accumulate irregularly.[]

  • Retinal Degeneration-Nanophthalmos-Glaucoma Syndrome

    The foveal reflex is frequently absent. In microphthalmia all ocular structures are small.[]

  • Ectopia Lentis

    Fundus examination showed absent foveal reflex.[]

  • Cytomegalovirus Retinitis

    Macula showed mottled appearance (pigmented and depigmented patches) and foveal reflex was absent.[] On fundus examination, vitreous haze reduced, optic disc was pale, macula appeared mottled and foveal reflex was absent.[]

  • Spinocerebellar Ataxia Type 30

    The foveal light reflexes were absent, and there was subtle pigmentary mottling in the foveal region (Fig. 1). Pupil examination was normal.[] The foveal light reflexes were absent, but there were no pigmentary changes (Fig. 4). Pupillary examination was normal.[] Despite noting visual loss for several years, our 2 patients had only subtle retinal artery attenuation and absent foveal light reflexes (Fig. 1 and 4).[]

  • Oculocutaneous Albinism

    RESULTS: In the fundoscopic examination and OCT imaging, the foveal light reflex was absent and the foveal pit could not be observed in all of the patients with OCA.[] Optic nerve cup to disc ratio was 0.2 in each eye with an absent foveal reflex. The retinal vasculature was normal with a 2/3 A/V ratio in both eyes.[]

  • Stargardt Macular Degeneration

    The foveal reflex was absent in each eye (see Figure 1).[]

  • Leber Congenital Amaurosis
