  • Macular Dystrophy with Central Cone Involvement

    Stage 3 is characterized by one or more patches of well-demarcated RPE atrophy outside the fovea.[journalofoptometry.org] In stage 4, the atrophic area involves the fovea which results in a profound decrease in vision.[journalofoptometry.org]
