Brief Summary:

Purpose: Determine the short-term safety of intravitreal bevacizumab by multifocal electroretinography (mf-ERG).

Methods: 120 eyes with choroidal neovascularization, proliferative diabetic retinopathy and retinal vein occlusion received intravitreal bevacizumab (2.5mg/0.1cc). All patients underwent best corrected visual acuity, fluorescein angiography, optical coherent tomography and mf-ERG before and 1 month after treatment.
