PURPOSE The purpose of this study was to understand clinical significance of near-infrared reflectance (NIR), blue fundus autofluorescence (FAF) and near-infrared autofluorescence (NIA) in dry age-related macular degeneration (AMD), by correlation with fluorescein angiography (FA) and cross-sectional spectral domain optical coherence tomography (SD OCT).

OBJECTIVE To report a novel surgical procedure to displace retained subfoveal perfluorocarbon liquid (PFCL). METHODS Retrospective cases series. Three patients had retained subfoveal droplets after PFCL was used in vitrectomy repair of retinal detachment. In each case, submacular PFCL was displaced to the subretinal space in the inferior periphery. A(More)
PURPOSE A reliable classification of AMD subgroups is necessary prior to any genetic or clinical investigation. For this purpose, we evaluated a selected list of items for AMD based on color photographs of the fundus but also on fluorescein and ICG angiographies and OCT. The first step (SPA-1) is to evaluate the interobserver agreement for AMD precursors.(More)
PURPOSE The determination of homogeneous subgroups of age-related macular degeneration (AMD) is necessary for clinical and genetic studies; therefore, the development of a simple, reproducible, and discriminating classification is essential. In this second part of our study (SPA-2), we evaluated a selected list of items for atrophic AMD based on color(More)
PURPOSE To assess intraobserver and interobserver agreement among physicians with different degrees of clinical experience, using a novel fundus autofluorescence semiautomated software for quantification of geographic atrophy in clinical setting. METHODS Fundus autofluorescence frames (excitation: 488 nm; emission: 500-700 nm) of 29 eyes (20 patients;(More)
PURPOSE To evaluate the interobserver and intraobserver reliability of detecting early and late age-related macular degeneration (AMD) using a nonmydriatic digital camera in two distinct groups of older people. DESIGN Prospective study. METHODS The two groups consisted of a series of patients older than 70 years hospitalized in a geriatric unit and a(More)
