Brief Summary:
The Cirrus OCT provides due to the spectral domain technology a 2-fold resolution than Stratus OCT generated in a comparable amount of time. Due to this higher resolution the retinal surface and the retinal pigment epithelium can be identified more clearly, a significantly reduced number of algorithm failures is expected

Condition or disease
Age-Related Macular Degeneration Choroidal Neovascularization

Primary Outcome Measures :
  1. Number of algorithm failures assessed by Stratus OCT versus Cirrus OCT in the horizontal central line [ Time Frame: only 1 examination ]

Secondary Outcome Measures :
  1. Number of algorrithm failures in Stratus versus Cirrus OCT assessed in the whole scan [ Time Frame: 1 examination ]
