This prospective, open-label, non-comparative, interventional case series evaluates the results of photodynamic therapy (PDT) in juxtafoveal and extrafoveal choroidal neovascularization (CNV) secondary to pathologic myopia in 27 eyes of 27 patients.
The average visual acuity dropped from 58.5 letters to 49.19. The visual acuity remained stable in 13 patients (48.1%), whereas 14 patients (51.9%) lost more than 8 letters due to the extension of the lesion to subfoveal space. A strong association was found between advanced age and a worse visual prognosis (p = 0.001).
PDT may stabilise visual acuity in young patients with non-subfoveal CNV secondary to pathologic myopia.
The long-term visual prognosis of myopic CNV is …
