Intravitreal Bevacizumab for Low Vision in Neovascular Age-related Macular Degeneration (AMD)
Intravitreal Bevacizumab for the Treatment of Patients With Low Vision Due to Neovascular Age-related Macular Degeneration

The purpose of this study is to compare the effectiveness of intravitreal bevacizumab injection (IVBI) with respect to simple observation in patients with subfoveal choroidal neovascularisation (CNV) secondary to age-related macular degeneration (AMD) presenting at baseline with best corrected visual acuity (BCVA) less than 20/200.

There is no clear indication regarding the treatment of patients with subfoveal choroidal neovascularisation (CNV) secondary to age-related macular degeneration (AMD) presenting at baseline with best corrected visual acuity (BCVA) less than 20/200.

Treatment of eyes with low visual acuity could lead to a waste of resources, without any functional and social improvements.

Aim of the present study is to compare the effectiveness of intravitreal bevacizumab injection (IVBI) with respect to simple observation in
