About

200 eyes with each subtype of neovascular age-related macular degeneration will be included in this study and 3 years after the initial intravitreal bevacizumab, best-corrected visual acuity (BCVA) will be measured using Snellen charts at 6m. Central retinal thickness (CRT) will be measured using Stratus OCT and Cirrus SD-OCT (Zeiss). Data of treatment-naive eyes (group 1) were compared to the data of eyes that had undergone prior treatment with photodynamic therapy with verteporfin and intravitreal triamcinolone acetonide (group 2).

Full description

In this interventional clinical study, 181 eyes of 160 consecutive patients with active neovascular related macular degeneration meeting recommended criteria for inclusion and protocol criteria for anti-vascular endothelial growth factor therapy undergoing intravitreal bevacizumab monotherapy were evaluated. Data of treatment-naive eyes (Group 1, n = 114) were analyzed separately from eyes that had undergone previous photodynamic therapy plus intravitreal triamcinolone (Group 2, n = 67). Re-treatment criteria were based on clinical outcome following the official European label regimen. After 1 year of continuous service at an academic referral center, follow-up was performed in private practices in collaboration with the referral center. Main outcome parameters were best-corrected visual acuity and central retinal thickness.
