Macular Ganglion Cell Loss In Ocular Disorders

The Structure/Function Conundrum

Macular Ganglion Cell Loss In Ocular Disorders

- Glaucoma is a neurodegenerative disease causing the loss of retinal ganglion cells
- Ganglion cell numbers range from approximately .7 million to 1.5 million
- Density is greatest in the macula where the ganglion cell layer can be 6 cells deep
- The thinnest and densest layer of ganglion cells is in a 1 to 1.5 mm radius of the fovea
