Abstract Details


To evaluate the optical coherence tomography angiography (OCT-A) appearance of the superficial, deep capillary plexa and choriocapillaris in eyes affected by geographic atrophy due to age-related macular degeneration (AMD).


Araba University Hospital. Ophthalmology Deparment. Vitoria-Gasteiz. Spain


Optical coherence tomography angiography data were acquired using a HRA-2 (Heidelberg Engineering, Dossenheim, Germany). Autofluorescence and Multicolour images were performed on the same day.


Abnormalities of the choriocapillaris can be observed in eyes with atrophic AMD: - a loss of choriocapillaris in the bed of atrophy - a relative reduction of choriocapillaris density - flow inside the GA is impaired. Limitations include bad image quality due to this patient´s poor fixation ability, motion and projection artifact and inability to visualize slow flow lesions


OCT-A is a non-invasive imaging modality that allows the characterization and quantification of the microvasculature in non-neovascular AMD despite the current limitations.
