1. Correlation between microaneurysm closure rate and reduction in macular thickness following laser photocoagulation of diabetic macular edema

    Aim To correlate the microaneurysmal closure rate measured on fundus fluorescein angiography (FFA) with reduction in macular thickness observed on optical coherence tomography (OCT) following laser photocoagulation of diabetic macular edema. Materials and methods A prospective observational case series. Fifty patients (50 eyes) of type II diabetes mellitus with clinically significant macular oedema (CSME) underwent focal/grid laser photocoagulation. OCT and FFA were performed at baseline and at 2 and 12 weeks following laser photocoagulation to measure the change in macular thickness and the number of leaking microaneurysms respectively. Statistical analysis was performed using paired-ttest and Pearson's correlation test ...
