A combination of photodynamic therapy (PDT) plus intravitreal Lucentis (ranibizumab) can achieve visual results in patients with choroidal neovascularization secondary to age-related macular degeneration (AMD) similar to those of Lucentis monotherapy with fewer retreatments, according to a new study. Despite success in treating leakage from new...
