    Eleven patients with acute multifocal posterior placoid pigment epitheliopathy were followed up for 47 to 175 months (mean 106 months). Seven of 18 affected eyes (39%) developed progressive mild alterations in the retinal pigment epithelium. Seventeen eyes (94%) had a final visual acuity of 20/30 or better. One eye with progressive retinal pigment atrophy involving the fovea lost visual acuity from 20/25 to 20/60.
