The authors report a 26-year-old medical device saleswoman developing choroidal neovascularization after injury by intense pulsed light with detection and monitoring by optical coherence tomography angiography and treatment with intravitreal injection of ranibizumab. This is the first intense pulsed light-related choroidal neovascularization case, which reminds the importance of using appropriate eye protection throughout the course of treatment for all individuals present in the therapy room.

To describe a case of focal choroidal excavation (FCE) complicated with Type-2 choroidal neovascularization (CNV) in a patient with angioid streaks secondary to pseudoxanthoma elasticum before and aft...
To demonstrate how a patient with recurrent episodes of choroidal neovascularization (CNV), secondary to angioid streaks, can be managed successfully with a pro re nata regime of intravitreal bevacizu...
We compare the fluorescein angiography (FA) patterns with morphologic alterations detectable on spectral-domain OCT (SD-OCT) in myopic choroidal neovascularization (mCNV) and evaluate whether they inf...
To assess the changes in hyperreflective foci (HF) by means of spectral-domain optical coherence tomography (SD-OCT) in patients undergoing anti-VEGF treatment for subfoveal choroidal neovascularizati...
To compare typical polypoidal choroidal vasculopathy (T-PCV) and polypoidal choroidal neovascularization (P-CNV), which can be defined as two subtypes of PCV, and to elucidate the significance of the ...
The purpose of the trial is to compare efficacy and adverse effects of pulsed dye laser and intense pulsed light in patients with port wine stains.
This study will evaluate the efficacy of intense pulsed light (IPL) therapy for the treatment of dry eye disease. One eye of the participant will be randomized to receive the IPL treatment...
The purpose of the trial is to compare clinical efficacy and occurrence of side effects in the treatment of photodamaged skin with Pulsed Dye Laser and Intense Pulsed Light.
The purpose of the study is to compare efficacy and adverse effects of pulsed dye laser and intense pulsed light in patients with skin telangiectasia and redness.
Upper eyelid treatment has not been used with previously described methods of treatment of dry eye disease using intense pulsed light therapy because the upper lids disease was typically n...
A pathological process consisting of the formation of new blood vessels in the CHOROID.
Treatment of the skin with flashlamps of prescribed wavelengths, fluence, and pulse durations which target specific chromophores to induce photothermolysis at specific locations in the skin such as at the HAIR FOLLICLE or SPIDER VEINS.
Excessive axial myopia associated with complications (especially posterior staphyloma and CHOROIDAL NEOVASCULARIZATION) that can lead to BLINDNESS.
A form of RETINAL DEGENERATION in which abnormal CHOROIDAL NEOVASCULARIZATION occurs under the RETINA and MACULA LUTEA, causing bleeding and leaking of fluid. This leads to bulging and or lifting of the macula and the distortion or destruction of central vision.
A TIE receptor tyrosine kinase that is found almost exclusively on ENDOTHELIAL CELLS. It is required for both normal embryonic vascular development (NEOVASCULARIZATION, PHYSIOLOGIC) and tumor angiogenesis (NEOVASCULARIZATION, PATHOLOGIC).
