To determine whether oral beta-blockers (BBs) are associated with the development of neovascular age-related macular degeneration (nAMD).
This article was published in the following journal.
Name: Retina (Philadelphia, Pa.)
The association between long-term cardioprotective aspirin use and neovascular age-related macular degeneration is controversial. This study was undertaken to estimate the risk of neovascular age-rela...
The epidemiology, risk factors, and the effect of anti-VEGF treatment on neovascular age-related macular degeneration (nAMD) have primarily been studied in the first eye developing the disease. The un...
To demonstrate the advantage of optical coherence tomography angiography (OCTA) for the diagnosis and management of proliferative macular telangiectasia type 2 (MacTel2) masquerading as neovascular ag...
To compare the clinical outcomes of aflibercept used with a fixed schedule with a pro-re-nata (PRN) retreatment regimen in patients affected by neovascular age-related macular degeneration.
To investigate the frequency and patient characteristics that influence anatomic response of intravitreal aflibercept in treatment-naïve neovascular age-related macular degeneration (AMD).
The purpose of this study is to evaluate the safety and efficacy of single and repeated intravitreal injections of GB-102 in subjects with neovascular (wet) age-related macular degeneratio...
To assess effectiveness of Macugen for treatment of neovascular age-related macular degeneration by measuring the evolution of visual acuity. Treatment duration, frequency of administrati...
This study is designed to access the safety and efficacy of multiple injections of KH902 at variable dosing regimens in patients with choroidal neovascularization due to neovascular age-re...
The purpose of this study is to evaluate changes in preferential hyperacuity perimeter (PHP) and fundus autofluorescence (FAF) in patients with neovascular age-related macular degeneration...
Neovascular age-related macular degeneration (AMD) is the leading cause of severe vision loss in the Western world. Intravitreal ranibizumab has recently become the treatment of choice for...
A form of MACULAR DEGENERATION also known as dry macular degeneration marked by occurrence of a well-defined progressive lesion or atrophy in the central part of the RETINA called the MACULA LUTEA. It is distinguishable from WET MACULAR DEGENERATION in that the latter involves neovascular exudates.
A recombinant humanized monoclonal antibody fragment that binds VEGF-A to prevent its binding to VEGFR-1 and VEGFR-2 receptors. This activity reduces vessel permeability and angiogenesis in the treatment of neovascular age-related MACULAR DEGENERATION.
Fluid accumulation in the outer layer of the MACULA LUTEA that results from intraocular or systemic insults. It may develop in a diffuse pattern where the macula appears thickened or it may acquire the characteristic petaloid appearance referred to as cystoid macular edema. Although macular edema may be associated with various underlying conditions, it is most commonly seen following intraocular surgery, venous occlusive disease, DIABETIC RETINOPATHY, and posterior segment inflammatory disease.

Specialized ophthalmic technique used in the surgical repair and or treatment of disorders that include retinal tears or detachment; MACULAR HOLES; hereditary retinal disease; AIDS-related retinal infections; ocular tumors; MACULAR DEGENERATION; DIABETIC RETINOPATHY; and UVEITIS.
Drugs used in the treatment of acute or chronic vascular HYPERTENSION regardless of pharmacological mechanism. Among the antihypertensive agents are DIURETICS; (especially DIURETICS, THIAZIDE); ADRENERGIC BETA-ANTAGONISTS; ADRENERGIC ALPHA-ANTAGONISTS; ANGIOTENSIN-CONVERTING ENZYME INHIBITORS; CALCIUM CHANNEL BLOCKERS; GANGLIONIC BLOCKERS; and VASODILATOR AGENTS.
Ophthalmology is the branch of medicine that is devoted to the study and treatment of eye diseases. As well as mild visual defects correctable by lenses, ophthalmology is concerned with glaucoma, uveitis and other serious conditions affecting the eye, ...
