SD-OCT helps predict response to VEGF therapy in patients with RVO

SAN DIEGO — Baseline visual acuity and features of theouter retina seen on spectral-domain optical coherence tomography can helppredict final visual outcome in patients with macular edema secondary toretinal vein occlusion, according to a speaker here.“Despite complete resolution of macular edema, somepatients still have a poor visual outcome,” Hector H. Hernandez-Torres, MD, said at the American Society ofRetina Specialists annual meeting. “Macular thickness is only one of severalfactors that affect visual acuity.”
