BACKGROUND Different tests were applied to test the sensitivity of patient self-control; Amsler grid and visual acuity (VA) assessment, as well as fundus examinations to reveal recurrent choroidal neovascularisation (CNV) activity in age-related macular degeneration as detected by spectral domain optical coherence tomography (SD-OCT) in monthly controls. METHODS A prospective interventional case series of patients with exudative age-related macular degeneration was examined, which received… CONTINUE READING
