Photodynamic therapy and intravitreal triamcinolone for extrafoveal choroidal neovascularization in neovascular age-related macular degeneration.
We report a case of extrafoveal choroidal neovascularization (CNV) secondary to neovascular age-related macular degeneration treated with photodynamic therapy (PDT) and intravitreal triamcinolone. Nine months following PDT and intravitreal triamcinolone, no ophthalmoscopic or angiographic evidence of recurrent CNV in the left eye was found. The intraocular pressure (IOP) increased from 10 mmHg on presentation to 20 mmHg at 9 months. No IOP-lowering agents were required. The mild nuclear sclerosis remained unchanged.
