Methods: Intravitreal triamcinolone (4 mg, 0.1 cc) and photodynamic therapy with verteporfin were applied to 48 eyes of 33 subjects (25 male and 8 female; mean age: 68.9 years) with subfoveal choroidal neovascular membrane secondary to age-related macular degeneration. Patients were assessed for ocular hemodynamic parameters with color Doppler imaging 24 hr before and 1 week, 1 month, and 3 months after a single-dose administration of combined intravitreal triamcinolone and photodynamic therapy.
