Intravitreal afibercept and ranibizumab for PCV

This is a retrospective, interventional series comprising 98 eyes with polypidal choroidal vasculopathy (PCV) with the aim of comparing treatments with afibercept and ranibizumab, highlighting any differences in their efficacy. Case notes and imaging (FFA / ICG / OCT) were...

Exudative age-related macular degeneration

The authors looked at macular lesions in eyes with newly diagnosed exudative age-related macular degeneration. The eyes of 23 patients were included and tested for visual acuity, contrast sensitivity, microperimetry, optical coherence tomography (OCT) and fluorescein and indocyanine green angiography....
