Optical coherence tomography following photodynamic therapy with verteporfin for subfoveal predominantly classic choroidal neovascularization.
We characterized the changes in optical coherence tomography following photodynamic therapy (PDT) for subfoveal predominantly classic choroidal neovascularization (CNV) in 26 eyes before, 1 week after, and 3 months after treatment. There appears to be a temporal decrease in central retinal thickness, increase in central retinal pigment epithelium/CNV complex thickness, and decrease in subretinal fluid following PDT, making it a useful adjunct in the management of CNV due to of age-related macular degeneration.
