• Twenty-eight patients with fundus flavimaculatus were evaluated retrospectively after they had undergone examination for and treatment of low vision. Despite poor distance acuity, 27 (96%) of the patients could read 1M (20/50 reduced Snellen) or smaller print with a spectacle lens, and all patients could read standard-sized print (1M text) with some optical aid. Because such uniform improvement is uncommon among patients with low vision, we recommend examination for and trial of low-vision aids for those patients with this disorder who are having visual difficulties.
