  • Abstract
  • Look Inside

We treated subfoveal choroidal neovascularization in 6 eyes of angioid streaks by surgical removal of neovascular membrane. After the follow up of 4 to 10 months, average 5.7 months, the visual acuity and the visual field either remained stable or improved in almost all the eyes. Serious postoperative complication was consistently absent. These cases illustrate the value of surgical removal of neovascular membrane in this disease entity.
