Introduction Methods Retrospective observational case series. Patient presenting maculopathy and complete imaging Choroidal neovascularization (CNV) is the hallmark were included. FA, SD-OCT, OCT-A and FA coupled of exudative age-related macular degeneration to SD-OCT images were graded independently for (wAMD) and may complicate other diseases (uveitis, presence or absence of CNV by ophthalmologists with pathological myopia, etc.). In wAMD, CNV accounts varying expertise levels. for over 80% of severe visual loss cases . CNV
