Macular hole following intravitreal bevacizumab injection in choroidal neovascularization caused by age-related macular degeneration

Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review

Abstract

This report describes formation of a full-thickness macular hole subsequent to an injection of bevacizumab for the treatment of neovascular AMD. This complication may be caused by focal tractional forces on the retinal surface due to either vitreous incarceration at the injection site or contraction of the choroidal neovascularization membrane. Alternatively, it may be due to a toxic effect of bevacizumab on a previously compromised retina.
