Retinal fluorotachometry {RFT) is a new clinical method for measurements of retinal blood flow and in particular retinal capillary perfusion. "Retinal fluoro" refers to: a fluorescent dye front in the retinal vessels, and "tachometry" [Gr. taches: speed, metrein: to measure] means: measurement of the speed. So RFT is: measurement of the speed of a fluorescent dye front in the retinal vessels. The development and application of this method is the subject of this thesis.
