Angiographic and Optical Coherence Tomography Characteristics of Recent Myopic Choroidal Neovascularization – Corrected Proof

Purpose: To analyze the contribution of fluorescein angiography (FA) and spectral-domain optical coherence tomography (SD OCT) to the diagnosis of recent choroidal neovascularization (CNV) associated with high myopia.Design: Retrospective, observational case series.Methods: Ninety eyes of 73 highly myopic patients (refractive error ≥−6 diopters) with CNV in 1 or both eyes were included. Epidemiologic features, refractive error, fundus examination, fluorescein angiography, and SD OCT findings at onset of CNV were analyzed.Results: Mean age at onset of CNV was 54.4 ± 14 years. CNV was bilateral in 17 of 73 cases. Mean refractive error was −13.9 ± 5.2 diopters. Myopic CNV was associated (Read more...)
