PURPOSE To analyze choroidal changes associated with reticular pseudodrusen by indocyanine green angiography (ICGA) and enhanced depth imaging spectral-domain optical coherence tomography (EDI SD-OCT). METHODS Twenty-two consecutive patients (22 eyes) with reticular pseudodrusen, and without medium/large drusen, underwent ICGA and EDI OCT. Twenty-one age-(More)
PURPOSE To evaluate changes in macular morphology due to myopic choroidal neovascularization (CNV), using spectral-domain optical coherence tomography (SD-OCT). METHODS In all, 22 eyes with recent-onset untreated CNV underwent 1 intravitreal injection of anti-vascular endothelial growth factor (anti-VEGF), followed by a pro-re-nata regimen. SD-OCT was(More)
PURPOSE To analyze functional and clinical data of Best vitelliform macular dystrophy (VMD) patients with mutations in the BEST1 gene. METHODS Best VMD patients with BEST1 mutations were evaluated prospectively regarding age, age of onset, best-corrected visual acuity (BCVA), fundus autofluorescence, fluorescein angiography, optical coherence tomography,(More)
PURPOSE To evaluate the effects of a single injection of Ozurdex over 6 months in eyes with persistent diabetic macular edema (DME). METHODS In this retrospective interventional study, 9 patients with decreased visual acuity, as a result of persistent DME, received Ozurdex (intravitreal dexamethasone implant 0.7 mg). Main outcome measures included changes(More)
PURPOSE To evaluate the effects of repeated intravitreal dexamethasone implant (IDI) (Ozurdex®) in eyes with macular edema (ME) due to retinal vein occlusion (RVO). METHODS We reviewed the charts of patients with RVO-related ME, who received repeated Ozurdex IDI (0.7 mg) on an 'as-needed' basis. Main outcome measures included changes in best-corrected(More)
PURPOSE The purpose of this study was to analyze the integrated infrared reflectance, fundus autofluorescence, and fluorescein angiography (integrated confocal scanning laser ophthalmoscopy fundus imaging) features of reticular pseudodrusen and eye-tracked Spectralis high-resolution spectral domain optical coherence tomography (Spectralis SD-OCT; Heidelberg(More)
PURPOSE Major genetic factors for age-related macular degeneration (AMD) have recently been identified as susceptibility risk factors, including polymorphisms of HTRA1 and CFH genes. The purpose was to analyze the angiographic features of patients harboring homozygous genotypes for HTRA1 and CFH genes in a French exudative AMD population. METHODS Two(More)
PURPOSE To investigate the relationship between morphologic and functional abnormalities in patients affected with adult-onset foveomacular vitelliform macular dystrophy (AFVD). DESIGN Prospective, noncomparative observational study. METHODS A complete ophthalmologic examination, including best-corrected visual acuity (BCVA), fundus examination,(More)
To analyze the course of eyes with vitreomacular traction (VMT), and to find by optical coherence tomography (OCT) possible correlations between vitreomacular interface area changes and the chance of spontaneous VMT resolution. Retrospective analysis of all consecutive patients presenting with VMT over a 24-month period. We introduced a novel OCT evaluation(More)
PURPOSE To describe the different morphological features in adult onset foveomacular vittelliform dystrophy (AOFVD) using high-resolution spectral domain optical coherence tomography (OCT). DESIGN Prospective observational case series. METHODS Complete ophthalmologic examination, including spectral domain OCT, was performed in 49 consecutive AOFVD(More)
