PURPOSE: Diabetic maculopathy can be treated with intravitreal injection of vascular endothelial growth factor (VEGF) inhibitors. However, the therapy is not effective in all patients, and it would be desirable to have parameters for differentiating patients who will benefit from treatment from those who will not. Retinal fixation has been shown to be impaired in patients with low visual acuity (VA) secondary to macular disease, but the changes in fixational eye movements after anti-VEGF treatment for diabetic maculopathy have not been investigated...

A review of the literature from 2014 to 2016 was conducted, focusing on the results of optical coherence tomography angiography in different chorioretinal diseases. In only 3 years, optical coherence tomography angiography has been shown to be an effective tool for diagnosing choroidal neovascularization complicating age-related macular degeneration, pathologic myopia, and inflammatory conditions. The technique has sometimes been considered superior to conventional multimodal imaging, for example, in choroidal neovascularization associated with chronic central serous chorioretinopathy or multifocal choroiditis...

Diabetic retinopathy (DR) is a well-known risk factor in the development of radiation maculopathy (RM). Steroids have been shown to improve the vision and reduce the macular thickness in patients with RM. This observational case report highlights altered course of DR after a course of radiotherapy for orbital lymphoma, after a single dose of intravitreal dexamethasone implant showed a dramatic revascularization of the ischemic macula, with a significant reduction in the size of ischemic area. This appears to be the first case in literature corroborating the favorable effect on steroids on retinal vasculature, seen angiographically...

BACKGROUND: Optical coherence tomography angiography allows an exact visualization of retinal vascular changes. To interpret the possibilities and limitations using OCTA in clinical practice, we analysed the quality of OCTA findings concerning the evaluability. Furthermore, we correlated our OCTA findings with fluorescein angiography (FAG) in relation of the presence of microaneurysms (MA) and enlargement of the foveal avascular zone (FAZ) in diabetic maculopathy. PATIENTS AND METHODS: 30 eyes from 15 patients with diabetic maculopathy were imaged in 3 × 3mm volume scans and were depicted in OCTA mode (SSADA algorithm)...
