Progression rates by category (I to IV) were 0, 14.3, Methods We retrospectively reviewed OCT images 47.5, and 73.3%, respectively. Logistic regression analysis (512 × 128 macular cube, Cirrus) from 138 patients diagnosed showed risk of progression to late AMD was 3.0 times (95% of early AMD in at least one eye and follow-up of at least CI: 1.2–7.9) higher for http://www.deepdyve.com/assets/images/DeepDyve-Logo-lg.png Graefe's Archive for Clinical and Experimental Ophthalmology Springer Journals
