thickness 1st month after PRP and their changes were analysed

As our population ages, increasing numbers of people are being affected by agerelated macular
degeneration (AMD), the most common type of macular
Eyes that met the following criteria were excluded: 1) vitreous hemorrhage or cataract-like media opacities, 2) foveal avascular zone irregularities detected by Fundus fluorescein angiography, 3) six clock hours or more of macular
capillary non-perfusion on Fundus fluorescein angiography, 4) any neovascularizations, 5) history of vitreoretinal surgery, or 6) preoperative vitreomacular interface disease detected by optical coherence tomography.
The results indicated a 57% reduced risk of Age-Related Macular
Jamie Cuthbertson, Macular
Society regional manager and Scottish War Blinded member, said: "Working together to host information events like these gives us a great opportunity to highlight the effects of macular
disease, and how crucial it is that we continue to fund research into macular
conditions, so that one day, we can find a cure."
Conclusions: There was thicker fovea, thinner parafoveal macular
area and smaller macular
volume in children having high myopia aged 5 to 8 years as compared to age matched healthy controls.
"This overview of reviews and meta-analyses suggest that anti-VEGF treatments do not increase the risk of systemic adverse events, but that caution might be advisable in older patients with age-related macular
degeneration who may be at higher risk of hemorrhagic events when receiving ranibizumab," the authors write.
This study consists of a retrospective evaluation of anatomical and functional results of idiopathic macular
The US Food and Drug Administration (FDA) has approved the Chemistry, Manufacturing and Controls (CMC) Prior-Approval Supplement (PAS) for the EYLEA (aflibercept) Injection prefilled syringe to treat neovascular (wet) age-related macular
degeneration (Wet AMD), macular
edema following retinal vein occlusion (RVO), diabetic macular
edema (DME) and diabetic retinopathy (DR).
