57-year-old male with a history of high myopia with subsequent macular neovascularization. His left eye became affected requiring krypton laser treatment and the right eye recently suffered similar neovascularization. He received PDT treatment, but continues to experience progressive symptoms of metamorphopsia and difficulty reading.
Is the therapy received to date correct?
Is PDT therapy the only useful treatment in this case, or should other therapeutic/surgical options be considered?
Are there any private or public healthcare facilities, including international ones, specialized in research and treatment of myopic macular degeneration, including experimental therapies?
Can you provide any suggestions about lifestyle and any other precautions that can be taken, or advice concerning optical and electronic devices for the partially-sighted?
I think that the therapy was appropriate to date, however, he is a good candidate for Lucentis or Avastin intravitreal injections into the right eye in attempt to halt the neovascularization and leakage of fluid under the retina.
