PURPOSE To report delay in choroidal perfusion suggestive of ischemia after photodynamic therapy (PDT) with verteporfin for choroidal neovascularization (CNV). DESIGN Observational case series. METHODS Retrospective review of all patients who developed choroidal ischemia after PDT. RESULTS This vascular change was found in eight (2.1%) of 373 eyes of patients treated for CNV as a result of age-related macular degeneration (AMD) and in one (0.9%) of 114 eyes treated for pathologic myopia… CONTINUE READING
