    Correlation of SD-OCT Features and Retinal Sensitivity in Neovascular Age-related Macular Degeneration

    Purpose: To correlate retinal sensitivity in patients with neovascular age-related macular degeneration (AMD) with specific characteristics of retinal morphology. Methods: Thirty eyes of 30 patients presenting with active choroidal neovascularization were examined by spectral domain optical coherence tomography (SD-OCT) and microperimetry (MP1). Image processing software was used to match a fundus photographic (FP) MP1 image with an infrared+OCT SD-OCT image. Each MP test point for retinal sensitivity was positioned at the corresponding SD-OCT location, and the microperimetric results were evaluated. Results: An intact retinal configuration was associated with a median retinal sensitivity of 15.5 dB [quartiles: 12dB, 18dB ...
