Brief Summary:
Retinal blood flow velocity is affected by Bevacizump intravitreal injection. This effect is correlated to treatment success.

Condition or disease
Choroidal Neovascularization

Detailed Description:
The purpose of the study was to carry out a pilot study on the short-term effect of intravitreal Bevacizumab (Avastin) injection on retinal blood-flow velocity and test whether the short-term haemodynamic changes could predict the longer term clinical result of the treatment.
