Optical coherence tomography (OCT) is a valuable tool for assessment of the vitreoretinal interface. This article reviews the normal process of age-related posterior vitreous detachment as viewed by OCT. Abnormalities of the vitreoretinal interface as imaged by OCT are described including vitreomacular traction syndrome, cystoid macular edema/ diabetic(More)
PURPOSE To describe the efficacy of intravitreal aflibercept on 12-month visual and anatomical outcomes in patients with neovascular age-related macular degeneration (AMD) recalcitrant to prior monthly intravitreal bevacizumab or ranibizumab. METHODS Non-comparative case series of 21 eyes of 21 AMD patients with evidence of persistent exudation(More)
PURPOSE To evaluate frequency of injections, visual and anatomical outcomes of neovascular age-related macular degeneration (nAMD) patients transitioned to intravitreal aflibercept after failure to extend treatment interval beyond 8 weeks with prior intravitreal bevacizumab or ranibizumab. METHODS Retrospective review of patients with nAMD switched to(More)
BACKGROUND AND OBJECTIVE To quantitatively evaluate the change in pigment epithelial detachment (PED) morphology on spectral-domain optical coherence tomography (SD-OCT) 18 months after the transition to intravitreal aflibercept in patients with neovascular age-related macular degeneration (AMD) with PED recalcitrant to monthly intravitreal bevacizumab or(More)
PURPOSE To evaluate the imaging characteristics of macular neovascular pigment epithelial detachments (PEDs) and their response to anti-vascular endothelial growth factor (VEGF) therapy. METHODS Patients with exudative age-related macular degeneration (AMD), idiopathic polypoidal choroidal vasculopathy, presumed ocular histoplasmosis syndrome (POHS) and(More)
PURPOSE To evaluate the quantitative and topographic relationship between reticular pseudodrusen (RPD) on infrared reflectance (IR) and subretinal drusenoid deposits (SDD) on en face volumetric spectral domain optical coherence tomography. METHODS Reticular pseudodrusen were marked on IR images by a masked observer. Subretinal drusenoid deposits were(More)
PURPOSE To present a case report in which fundus autofluorescence (FAF) helped to diagnose and monitor the clinical course of a patient diagnosed with punctate inner choroidopathy (PIC). METHODS Retrospective chart review of patient data. RESULTS FAF showed multiple hypoautofluorescent spots in the posterior pole.It also showed an area of(More)
Retinal artery occlusion can be the first indicator of a significant cardiovascular disorder and the need for treatment. We present the case of a 69-year-old man with a cilioretinal artery occlusion and retinal ischemia. Retinal imaging, in particular fundus autofluorescence, highlighted an intraluminal hyperautofluorescent lesion which led to the diagnosis(More)
