The Impact of Two Strategies in the Monitoring of Exudative ARMD on the Visual Acuity (by OCT B Scan or OCT Angiography)

The treatment of neovascular age-related macular degeneration (ARMD) is a major issue of public health. The therapeutic arsenal has widely grown throughout the years with the emergence of intra-vitreous anti-angiogenic treatments, under different surveillance protocols. The “PRN” surveillance (pro re …
