Microperimetry is an increasingly often used method of assessing the sensitivity of the central macula, analyzing fixation capabilities and loci, and accurately combining structural and functional information, even in the absence of stable fixation. Ongoing gene therapy trials have targeted the central retina, and utilized microperimetry as a main outcome measure for changes in retinal function. In retinal treatment planning, microperimetry has been used to assess the potential therapeutic window of opportunity. In the following pages, we briefly review the necessary steps to perform the Macular Integrity Assessment (MAIA) microperimetry.
