Abstract

PURPOSE: To assess focal electroretinographic findings before and after retinal translocation surgery in a patient with age-related macular degeneration. METHOD: Case report. A 79-year-old man with a well-defined subfoveal choroidal neovascular membrane from age-related macular degeneration underwent preoperative and postoperative focal electroretinography. RESULTS: After retinal translocation surgery, best-corrected Snellen visual acuity improved from 9/200 to 20/60. A significant increase in mean foveal amplitude, from 0.08 μV to 0.16 μV (P = 0.008) was recorded. CONCLUSION: Age-related macular degenerative changes in visual acuity and foveal electroretinogram amplitude may be reversible after retinal translocation surgery.
