Progression of Myopic Maculopathy After Treatment of Myopic CNV

The progression of myopic maculopathy may affect the long-term VA outcome of myopic CNV treatment. We evaluated the long-term progression of myopic maculopathy and functional outcome after treatment of myopic choroidal neovascularization (CNV) with photodynamic therapy (PDT) and/or intravitrealranibizumab (IVR). This was a retrospective study with a cross-sectional evaluation, including fifty-four eyes with a mean follow-up of 80.6 ± 28.0...

Choroidal neovascularization (CNV) is its most threatening complication, often resulting in irreversible deterioration and loss of central vision. The precise pathogenesis of this disease remains unclear and several theories have been proposed. Improvements have been made in the diagnosis and characterization of myopic CNV over the years but there are no recognized...
