Seventy-seven children (132 eyes; average age, 1 year, 7 months; range, 1 month to 60 months), mainly afflicted with retinopathy of prematurity (107 eyes), were(More)

PURPOSE To evaluate macular function by focal electroretinography and fluorescein angiography (FA) in patients with neovascular age-related macular degeneration submitted to verteporfin photodynamic therapy (VPT). METHODS Prospective study involving 22 patients with age-related macular degeneration and predominantly classic subfoveal neovascular membrane,(More)
PURPOSE To identify the optical coherence tomography (OCT) findings in patients with age-related macular degeneration (ARMD) treated with photodynamic therapy (PDT). STUDY DESIGN Open, non-randomized, interventional case series. METHODS ARMD patients were submitted to a complete ophthalmological examination, fluorescein angiography, and OCT at baseline(More)
Purpose: To evaluate the agreement between optical coherence tomography (OCT) and fundus fluorescein angiography (FFA) regarding the detection of cystoid macular edema (CME) following cataract surgery. Methods: Retrospective comparative observational series of 25 eyes with suspected CME. Patients with low visual acuity and alterations in fundus(More)
