PURPOSE To study the changes in the distribution and morphologic features of intraretinal microexudates after macular photocoagulation. DESIGN Prospective cohort study. PARTICIPANTS Thirteen treatment-naïve patients with clinically significant macular edema in type 2 diabetes. METHODS Patients were treated with focal macular photocoagulation. Changes in the localization of hyperreflective foci were analyzed by spectral domain (SD) optical coherence tomography (OCT) during follow-up at day… CONTINUE READING
