Abstract: Diffuse luminance flicker induces an increase in retinal vessel diameter. This increase most probably reflects an increase in retinal blood flow previously evidenced in humans by the blue field simulation technique. The technique needs to be optimized in terms of flicker parameters, to determine whether flicker-evoked retinal diameter changes could represent a useful clinical measure of the capability of the retinal vascular system to vasodilate.
