PURPOSE To investigate the potential influences that affect visual acuity (VA) outcome in a clinic-based cohort of age-related macular degeneration (AMD) patients undergoing anti-vascular endothelial growth factor (anti-VEGF) treatment for choroidal neovascularization. DESIGN Prospective interventional case series. METHODS Patients with subfoveal(More)
PURPOSE Anti-vascular endothelial growth factor (anti-VEGF) drugs have dramatically improved the treatment of neovascular AMD. In pivotal studies, almost 90% of patients maintain vision, with approximately 30% showing significant improvement. Despite these successes, 10% to 15% of patients continue to lose vision, even with treatment. It has been reported(More)
Despite initial concerns regarding systemic complications, the use of intravitreal antivascular endothelial growth factor (anti-VEGF) agents for ocular disease is rapidly expanding worldwide, in terms of both the number of patients injected and its indications. To our knowledge, there are no cases in the literature reporting erectile dysfunction following(More)
BACKGROUND A novel, ultra-low energy nanosecond laser (retinal rejuvenation therapy) has been developed with the aim to slow progression of early age-related macular degeneration (AMD). The safety, changes in fundus characteristics and macular function in a cohort of participants with bilateral intermediate AMD are reported. DESIGN Prospective(More)
OBJECTIVE To describe adverse sequelae of retinal prophylaxis in fellow eyes of patients with rhegmatogenous retinal detachment. DESIGN Records were reviewed for 17 patients who had retinal breaks or detachment subsequent to prophylactic retinopexy applied to the fellow eye (without posterior vitreous detachment) at the time of primary rhegmatogenous(More)
Dear Editor: It is important that we understand which factors dictate the visual acuity outcome in people receiving anti-vascular endothelial growth factor (anti-VEGF) for choroidal neovascularization (CNV) secondary to age-related macular degeneration (AMD). In this study, we sought to assess whether optical coherence tomography (OCT) features at baseline(More)
A previously healthy 29-year-old man was admitted to a tertiary referral center with acute left hemiparesis followed shortly by de novo convulsive status epilepticus. This was in the context of a 2-month history of flu-like symptoms, severe headaches, and retinopathy recently diagnosed as acute multifocal placoid pigment epitheliopathy. Neuroimaging(More)
