this article reads a bit back to front. one of the first things should be the function of the macula, i get the impression from the article that its function is as a sunblock :P
this sentence : "Structures in the macula are specialized for high acuity vision. Within the macula are the fovea and foveola which contain a high density of cones (photoreceptors with high acuity)" should go higher and get expanded a little? i dont have the expertise im afraid. —Preceding unsigned comment added by 220.127.116.11 (talk) 22:40, 12 December 2010 (UTC)
Article describes macular degeneration as a "severe" disease. My instinct is to remove the word as being both unnecessary (loss of vision is by its nature a severe problem) and misleading (as there are mild and slow-progressing cases of macular degeneration). Any thoughts? Pheidias 21:56, 23 January 2007 (UTC)
Yes Perhaps a distinction should be made between macular degeneration and a macular hole. They aren't the same thing. —Preceding unsigned comment added by 18.104.22.168 (talk) 21:41, 10 February 2009 (UTC)
Since the article says the macula lutea is itself 5 mm wide, and optic disk also has a diameter, what is your distance based upon? Center of macula to edge of disk? Center-to-center? Edge-to-edge? SBHarris 23:34, 12 December 2010 (UTC)
