Purpose: To evaluate the macular area of patients with exudative age–related macular degeneration with Optical Coherence Tomography/Scanning Laser(OCT/SLO) and to compare the data obtained with Optical Coherence Tomography 3(OCT 3) findings. Methods: We evaluated 30 patients (30 eyes) with different pattern of macular degeneration. Well evident choroidal neovascularization (WECNV), Minimally evident choroidal neovascularization (MECNV), Angiomatous Retinal Proliferations (RAP), Pigment epithelium detachment(PED). Each patient underwent complete ocular examination, fluorescein angiography (FA),indocyanine green angiography(ICGA), Optical Coherence Tomography/Scanning Laser Ophthalmoscope (OCT/SLO) and OCT 3 evaluation.The scans obtained with both techniques were recorded. Results: OCT/ SLO images showed in respect of OCT 3 a more precise localization of neovascular membrane and a more complete evaluation of fluid exudation in macular area.OCT 3 resulted easier and faster to use. Conclusions: Both techniques resulted useful to achieve and complete a correct macular lesions diagnosis.
