Polypoidal Choroidal Vasculopathy
Polypoidal Choroidal VasculopathyPolypoidal Choroidal Vasculopathy (PCV) is thought to be a variant of AMD that occurs in the slightly younger middle-aged adults. It is characterised by retinal bleeding from 'polypoidal-like' abnormal choroidal vessels.

Despite the fact that treatment is similar to that of Wet AMD, it often requires a more individualised treatment plan that we are able to offer here at Asia Retina.
