PURPOSE To characterize retinal pigment epithelial (RPE) cell loss as evidenced by autofluorescence imaging in patients with neovascular age-related macular degeneration (AMD). DESIGN Retrospective cohort study. PARTICIPANTS There were 162 eyes of 116 consecutive patients with neovascular AMD examined in a retinal practice. METHODS Each patient underwent a complete examination including autofluorescence imaging. Areas of confluent absence of autofluorescence signal of at least 0.5 mm in… CONTINUE READING
