Abstract

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 incentral 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 degneration.
