  • Look Inside

We reviewed the outcome of surgical removal of subfoveal choroidal neovascularization in 17 eyes followed up for 6 months or longer. The series comprised age-related macular degeneration 5 eyes, angioid streaks 5 eyes, high myopia 3 eyes and idiopathic 4 eyes. Visual acuity improved by 2 lines or more in 10 eyes (59%) . Final visual acuity of 0.1 or more was obtained in 9 eyes (53%). The postoperative visual acuity was positively correlated with the preoperative one. Eyes with age-related macular degeneration resulted in poorer visual outcome than other entities. Recurrence occurred in 2 eyes (12%) .
