PURPOSE: We aimed to assess the subfoveal choroidal thickness (SFChT) and the effect of treatment with anti-vascular endothelial growth factor (anti-VEGF) agents on the SFChT in age-related macular degeneration (AMD) subtypes. METHODS: We enrolled 128 eyes of 107 patients with neovascular AMD (60 women; 47 men; mean age, 73.6 ± 8.9 years), and prospectively evaluated the best-corrected visual acuity (BCVA) and SFChT at baseline and at 3, 6, and 12 months after treatment with anti-VEGF agents...

PURPOSE: To determine sensitivity and specificity of polypoidal choroidal vasculopathy (PCV) diagnosis using color fundus photography (CFP), optical coherence tomography (OCT) and fundus fluorescein angiography (FFA) without indocyanine-green angiography (ICGA). DESIGN: Validity analysis. METHODS: Treatment-naïve eyes with serous/serosanguinous maculopathy undergoing CFP, OCT, FFA and ICGA imaging before treatment at a university-hospital in Thailand (January 2013 to June 2015) were identified...

This study investigated the "real-world" use of ranibizumab for neovascular age-related macular degeneration (nAMD) in Taiwan and assessed the visual outcome. We reviewed the medical records at National Cheng Kung University Hospital, Taiwan, during 2012-2014 for 264 consecutive eyes of 229 patients with nAMD, who applied for ranibizumab covered by national health insurance. A total of 194 eyes (73.5%) in 179 patients (65.5% men; mean ± standard deviation age 69.4 ± 10.7 years) were pre-approved for treatment...

PURPOSE: To investigate the relationship between choroidal structure and visual acuity after intravitreal aflibercept therapy for polypoidal choroidal vasculopathy (PCV). METHODS: We conducted a retrospective, single-centre and observational study including 18 eyes of 18 patients with PCV (73.8 ± 10.2 years of age) who were treated with three monthly intravitreal aflibercept injections followed by additional treatments in a treat-and-extend protocol. The cross-sectional images of the macula were obtained with enhanced depth imaging optical coherence tomography at baseline, at 3 months, and at 12 months...

Polypoidal choroidal vasculopathy (PCV) is a subtype of neovascular age-related macular degeneration characterised by an abnormal branching vascular network with aneurysmal polypoidal choroidal vascular lesions. PCV is more prevalent in Asian populations than in Caucasians, which may explain its underdiagnosis in Western countries. Evidence regarding the efficacy of different anti-vascular endothelial growth factor (anti-VEGF) agents on PCV is scarce, with most of these studies being conducted in Asian treatment-naïve patients...

Purpose: To report a case of polypoidal choroidal vasculopathy associated with optic disc coloboma. Methods: Case report. Results: A 50-year-old woman presented with optic disc coloboma and retinochoroidal coloboma associated with subretinal hemorrhage and serous retinal detachment (SRD) in her left eye. Optical coherence tomography (OCT) confirmed SRD at the macula and showed a sharply elevated retinal epithelial detachment at the choroidal excavation...

Purpose: This rare case shows the presence of both angioid streaks (AS) and central serous chorioretinopathy (CSC) in the same eye. Methods: A 41-year-old Caucasian male who also has a positive family history of AS was diagnosed with angioid streaks. He was followed for few years, later developed CSC in his good eye. Results: Fundus fluorescein led to the diagnosis of CSC and indocyanine green angiography ruled out the possibility of idiopathic polypoidal choroidal vasculopathy (IPCV). The CSC followed a chronic course of non-resolution and finally half fluence photodynamic therapy was performed...

Current imaging advancements have led to emergence of pachychoroid as an association of important vision threatening diseases like chronic serous chorioretinopathy and polypoidal choroidal vasculopathy. While the precise relation between thick choroid and such disorder is being investigated, the etiology behind pachychoroid remains elusive. We hypothesize pachychoroid to be a resultant of impeded vascular outflow due to thick sclera and increased scleral rigidity. We discuss our hypothesis in the perspective of other choroidal manifestations of anomalously thick scleral structure...

Polypoidal choroidal vasculopathy (PCV) is seen with polypoidal lesions and branching vascular networks (BVNs) (Spaide et al. in Retina 15(2):100-110, 1995; Yannuzzi et al. in Retina 10(1):1-8, 1990). There are reports about laser photocoagulation for PCV (Yuzawa et al. in Japan J Ophthalmol 47(4):379-384, 2003; Lee et al. in Eye 23(1):145-148, 2009); however, all these reports are about final vision and frequent relapses. Therefore, this treatment merits rigorous scrutiny using optical coherence tomography angiography (OCTA)...

Introduction: To evaluate the functional and morphological outcomes of intravitreal conbercept monotherapy in patients with polypoidal choroidal vasculopathy (PCV). Materials and methods: In this retrospective, observational case series study, we reviewed medical records of 48 eyes (48 patients) with naive PCV that were treated with a series of 3 monthly intravitreal injections of 0.5 mg of conbercept followed by as-needed injections (3+pro re nata). All patients completed at least 6 months of monthly follow-up...
