    Optical Coherence Tomography-Angiography of Different Choroidal Neovascularization Subtypes in Wet Age-related Macular Degeneration

    Age-related macular degeneration is a leading cause of irreversible vision loss in individuals over 55 years of age worldwide. Conventionally, it is divided into two subtypes – dry (non-neovascular) and wet (neovascular) form. Neovascular age-related macular degeneration comprises only 10-15% of all patients but is responsible for more than 80% of blindness related to the disease. It requires early diagnosis and timely treatment. Fluorescein angiography is the current ‘gold standard’ for diagnosing neovascular forms. However, as an invasive procedure, it may be contraindicated in some circumstances and cause serious adverse effects. Optical coherence tomography-angiography is a relatively new, non-invasive and fast ...
