Small lesion size and worse pre-treatment vision were associated with improved visual outcome 24 months after intravitreal Avastin (bevacizumab, IVB) treatment for myopic choroidal neovascularization (mCNV). Extreme myopia may result in degenerative changes of the retina. These degenerative changes may lead to complications such as retinal...

A new study finds that myopic maculopathy tends to progress in approximately 40% of highly myopic eyes, and the pattern of progression affects the visual prognosis. It is suggested that preventive therapy targeting posterior staphyloma should be considered to prevent the visual impairment caused by the progression of myopic maculopathy....

Choroidal thinning is a risk factor for myopic choroidal neovascularization (mCNV), according to a new study. The development of mCNV is characterized by serous retinal detachments and subretinal hemorrhage with fibrotic membrane formation. Intravitreal Avastin (bevacizumab) is generally injected to treat mCNV; however, only 40% to 70% of...
