This is a treatment of a male patient MacTel 1 in his left eye. Macular telangiectasia (MacTel) is a disease affecting the macula, causing loss of central vision. MacTel develops when there are problems with the tiny blood vessels around the fovea. In Type 1 MacTel, the blood vessels dilate and tiny aneurysms form, which leak and cause swelling. SubLiminal® laser treatment with Easyret® was initiated in this patient. After six months, a significant improvement is observed.
This is a 51-year-old man diagnosed with MacTel 1 in his left eye, referred after long history of unsuccessful treatments including intravitreal anti-VEGF and steroids.
