  • Abstract
  • Look Inside

Some types of age-related macular degeneration (AMD) may show, by fluorescein angiography, hyperfluorescent dots in the early phase and diffuse hyperfluorescence, or oozing, towards the later phase. Choroidal neovascularization (CNV) is hard to detect in these eyes in spite of the presence of subretinal hemor-rhage or serous retinal detachment. Indocyanine green angiography in 28 eyes of AMD with oozing showed CNV network, hypofluoresecent areas in the early phase and hyperfluorescence in the later phase. CNV was located in the area of oozing in 24 of 28 eyes (86%) . These features served as useful guidelines in the planning of laser photocoagulation.
