Early CNV detection with home monitoring yields better visual acuity outcomes

NEW ORLEANS — Patients at high risk for progression of age-related macular degeneration would benefit from using a home monitoring device strategy to detect early development of choroidal neovascularization, according to a presenter here. Earlier detection would increase the likelihood of maximizing visual acuity after later intravitreal anti-VEGF therapy, Susan B. Bressler, MD, said at Retina Subspecialty Day preceding the American Academy of Ophthalmology meeting.
