Abstract: : Aim: To evaluate the role of PDT for IPCV with Foveal involvement Materials and Methods: Eyes with IPCV with foveal involvement were included. Patients underwent Routine ophthalmic examination. HRA- FFA/ICGA and OCT were performed pretreatment and postreatment follow up. Results: 11 eyes/ 10 patients were evaluated and diagnosed to have IPCV with Foveal involvement during the period from Sept’2001 to October ‘2002. 70% were females. All patients were evaluated with FFA and ICGA, both pre and post treatment. The age ranged from 38 – 82 years and the average follow up was 6 months. 9 / 11 eyes (81.8%) underwent PDT. The initial VA ranged from 1/60 to 6/12 and final VA was between 6/60 and 6/9. Final VA improved in 44.4% and stabilized in 55.6% at the end of follow up. The spot size varied from 4100 – 6400 microns. 8/9 (88.9%) eyes resolved with single treatment and 1/9 (11.1%) eyes required 2 treatments. Conclusion: PDT is beneficial in IPCV with Foveal involvement in Indian Eyes
