In the July issue of the Scientific Ophthalmology, the official journal of the American Academy of Ophthalmology and number 2 in the raking in Impact Factor of over 50 ophthalmology journals worldwide, has published an article by Dr. Jordi Monés and his colleagues from the Institut de la Màcula i la Retina.

The article “Hyporeflective wedge-shaped band in geographic atrophy secondary to age-related macular degeneration: an underreported finding” describes a new finding in the layers of the retina of patients with geographic atrophy secondary to macular degeneration associated with age not previously described. This description may be of importance in the understanding of disease mechanisms at the cellular level and may contribute to research new experimental drugs.
