PURPOSE The purpose of this study was to determine the factors predictive of visual acuity (VA) outcomes 1 year after photodynamic therapy (PDT) for polypoidal choroidal vasculopathy. METHODS We prospectively studied 220 eyes of 210 Japanese patients with polypoidal choroidal vasculopathy treated with primary application of PDT. A stepwise logistic regression model was used to estimate the independent factors predictive of better VA and improvement of VA 1 year after the primary PDT… CONTINUE READING
