Macular pigment optical density (MPOD) and age-related macular degeneration (AMD) are thought to be associated; however, the details are not yet clearly understood. This study aimed at investigating how retinal anatomical structures relate with the spatial MPOD distribution in single eyes. Study setting and methods: In a subgroup of the third follow-up examination of the Münster Aging and Retina Study (MARS) cohort (mean age 78.4 years), 124 single eyes of 79 participants were examined. MPOD was assessed using 2-wavelength autofluorescence (AF). Retinal thickness (RT) and fovea pit profile slopes were measured using optical coherence tomography (OCT).
