    Contribution of OCT angiography in angioid streaks

    Purpose: To study the appearance of angioid streaks (AS) in swept source optical coherence tomography angiography. Methods: Retrospective observational study of 16 patients (31 eyes) with various stages of AS. All included patients underwent complete ophthalmologic examinations including best-corrected visual acuity (BCVA), slit-lamp examination, indirect ophthalmoscopy and fundus photography. Swept source optical coherence tomography (SS-OCT), OCT angiography (OCT-A) and fluorescein angiography were also performed. Results: En face OCT detected hyper-reflective points in 65% of cases, with a choriocapillaris (CC) shadow on the corresponding OCT-A. Diffuse CC rarefaction was detected in 94%. In eyes without neovascular complications, streaks were visible as ...
