    6. Choroidal juxtapapillary neovascularization regression in multiple evanescent white dot syndrome by optical coherence tomography angiography: a case report

      Choroidal juxtapapillary neovascularization regression in multiple evanescent white dot syndrome by optical coherence tomography angiography: a case report
      Background Multiple evanescent white dot syndrome most often resolves spontaneously without complications; however, choroidal neovascularization can sometimes occur. Case presentation Here, we describe a case of a 22-year-old white Caucasian man with blurred vision in his left eye who exhibited juxtapapillary choroidal neovascularization on optical coherence tomography angiography. Although multiple evanescent white dot syndrome is often self-limiting, to reduce the possibility of an inflammatory reaction, we preferred to administer prednisolone ...

      CLASSIFICATION OF HALLER VESSEL ARRANGEMENTS IN ACUTE AND CHRONIC CENTRAL SEROUS CHORIORETINOPATHY IMAGED WITH EN FACE OPTICAL COHERENCE TOMOGRAPHY
      Purpose: To compare the prevailing patterns of Haller vessel arrangements at the posterior pole between healthy eyes and those with central serous chorioretinopathy (CSC) using en face optical coherence tomography. Methods: Eyes of normal subjects and patients with acute or chronic CSC underwent optical coherence tomography imaging (RTVue 100; Optovue Inc, Fremont, CA). En face sections at the level of the Haller layer were classified by two masked graders into ...

    9. Pachychoroid neovasculopathy: aspect on optical coherence tomography angiography

      Pachychoroid neovasculopathy: aspect on optical coherence tomography angiography
      Purpose To describe and interpret the features of pachychoroid neovasculopathy (PNV) using optical coherence tomography angiography (OCTA) technique. Methods This is an observational case series of patients who presented with PNV. Best-corrected visual acuity (BCVA), anterior segment examination, dilated funduscopic examination, infrared and autofluorescence fundus images and spectral-domain optical coherence tomography (SD-OCT; B-scan, en-face and OCTA) were carried out for all patients. Choroid thickness was measured using enhanced depth imaging ...
