PURPOSE To determine the predictors of drusen reduction in eyes with nonexudative age-related macular degeneration (ARMD) treated with subthreshold infrared (810 nm) diode laser macular grid photocoagulation. Additionally, to determine the relationship of laser-induced drusen reduction and best-corrected visual acuity (BCVA) 18 months after laser treatment. DESIGN Randomized controlled clinical trial. METHODS Fifty patients (100 eyes) with bilateral nonexudative ARMD were enrolled at two… CONTINUE READING
