Abstract Details



Purpose:

To reveal the effects of fluorescein retinal angiography (FFA) on retinal and choroid.

Setting:

Retrospective case series

Methods:

Thirty eyes of 30 patients were included in this study. After standard ophthalmologic examination, macular and choroidal thickness (CT) was measured via OCT. 15-20 minutes after the dyes injected for the angiography procedures, OCT scan was performed again. Statistical analyses were performed to compare the measurements before and after the procedures.

Results:

The mean ages were 52.4 ± 6.2 year (range: 40-72 years). The mean macular thickness was 329 ± 66 μm before FFA and 326 ± 68 after FFA (p=0.992). The mean subfoveal CT was 270±22 μm before FFA and 272±30 μm after FFA (p=0.790).

Conclusions:

We have demonstrated that the CT does not change with FFA procedure.
