The myopic CNV (mCNV) is a blood vessel neoplasm starting from the choroid, based on pathological myopia (severe myopia).
Choroidal neovascularization secondary to pathological myopia is the most common cause of severe visual impairment in myopic patients younger than 50 years old. Because untreated small fibrovascular membranes cause rapid damage to the photoreceptors, timely treatment is required in view of poor spontaneous prognosis1.
Metamorphopsia is the first functional impairment which occurs in mCNV - visual acuity loss and scotoma follow later.
There is a need for better and quicker quantifying of the metamorphopsia in mCNV patients.
The aim of this study is to detect metamorphopsia and verify correlations of different indexes with disease activity or not, measured in Optical Cohorence Tomography (OCT), best corrected visual acuity (BCVA), Vision related quality of life questionnaire (NEI-VFY-25) and quantify severity of metamophopsia.

This study evaluates the safety and efficacy simultaneous, trans-conjunctival, 25-Gauge vitrectomy and phacoemulsification with intraocular lens implant in patients with metamorphopsia and...
Individuals operated for rhegmatogenous retinal detachment will be prospectively evaluated for postoperative retinal shift. Fundus autofluorescence will be used to evaluate retinal shift t...
Patients may experience metamorphopsia, or image distortion, after having vitrectomy to repair their rhegmatogenous retinal detachments (RRDs) especially those with a detached macula. Reti...

Epiretinal membranes (ERM) are disorders leading to vision loss and metamorphopsia. Vitrectomy with membrane peeling has developed to be the gold-standard in treatment of ERM. ERM can be w...
To investigate factors associated with the severity of metamorphopsia secondary to diabetic macular edema (ME) by evaluating optical coherence tomography (OCT) parameters including disorganization of ...
Standard implementation of the M-CHARTS metamorphopsia tool presents patients with only vertical and horizontal lines, potentially overlooking distortions not occurring within those precise meridians....
Epiretinal membranes are a disorder leading to metamorphopsia and loss in visual function. The gold standard in therapy is vitrectomy with membrane peeling, usually performed with chromovitrectomy. Th...
Epiretinal membrane is a macular disorder leading to metamorphopsia and decreased visual acuity. The aim of the present study was to assess the possible effects of air tamponade, balanced salt solutio...
Autosomal dominant hereditary maculopathy with childhood-onset accumulation of LIPOFUSION in RETINAL PIGMENT EPITHELIUM. Affected individuals develop progressive central acuity loss, and distorted vision (METAMORPHOPSIA). It is associated with mutations in bestrophin, a chloride channel.
