PURPOSE To evaluate the functional treatment response 3 months and 12 months after monthly ranibizumab in neovascular age-related macular degeneration (NAMD). METHODS Twenty-six eyes showing treatment-naïve NAMD were examined with the Heidelberg Spectralis OCT (SD-OCT) and the Nidek MP-1 microperimeter (MP) at baseline, after 3 months, and after 12 months(More)
PURPOSE   To evaluate the effect of fluid accumulation on local visual function in inflammatory cystoid-macular-edema (ICME). METHODS   This cross-sectional study applied optical-coherence-tomography over a 12×12 fovea-centered field in 50 patients with ICME and mapped the extent of fluid-filled spaces in various retinal layers, of subretinal-fluid and of(More)
PURPOSE To relate the functional response to distinct morphological features of the retina during aflibercept treatment for neovascular AMD (nAMD). METHODS A total of 726 retinal locations in 22 consecutive eyes presenting with treatment-naive nAMD underwent a standardized examination with spectral-domain optical coherence tomography (SD-OCT) and(More)
PURPOSE To evaluate morphological changes due to uveitis-associated cystoid macular oedema (uvCME) and their impact on central retinal sensitivity (CRS) before and after intravitreal triamcinolone-acetonide (IVTA). METHODS 28 eyes with uvCME were examined with microperimetry and spectral-domain optical-coherence-tomography (SD-OCT) before and after IVTA.(More)
PURPOSE To correlate the area of geographic atrophy (GA) and residual foveal sparing (FS), and to identify the minimum FS and maximum GA area allowing sufficient visual acuity (VA) for daily tasks. DESIGN Prospective cohort study. METHODS Thirty-six eyes of 25 patients with GA and FS were followed for 18 months using spectral-domain optical coherence(More)
