The patients were treated with photodynamic therapy for choroidal neovascularisation and have full-thickness retinal thinning in the area of treatment that mimics the appearance of a macular hole on optical coherence tomography (OCT). Ophthalmologists should recognise that this appearance does not represent a true macular hole when deciding how to manage these patients.
OCT distinguishes full-thickness macular holes (FTMH) from other entities such as lamellar holes.1,2 We present three patients treated with photodynamic therapy (PDT) for choroidal neovascular membranes (CNVM) who had full-thickness retinal thinning that mimicked an FTMH on OCT.
A 58-year-old woman with moderate myopia (−5.00 D) presented after four PDT sessions (spot diameters: …
