Anti-VEGF treatment is the cornerstone of treatment for neovascular macular degeneration. Treat
and extend is my preferred treatment protocol to tailor treatment to the disease severity. This aims
to avoid both under and over treatment. The major concern to date has been under-treatment but
there does seem to be a sub-group who go into remission and can exit anti-VEGF treatment.
Those who exit treatment do need to be followed and may present acutely to optometry with
changes in central vision. This may be due to progression of dry MD components including
geographic atrophy or recurrence of neovascular disease.
This presentation will be based on real cases to highlight the important variables.
