Abstract Details

Purpose:

To evaluate the long term effects of bevacizumab injections on the regression of corneal neovascularization and to introduce the new analysis method for corneal neovascularization

Setting:

Prospective/St. Mary's Hospital Seoul, Korea

Methods:

15 patients with corneal NV were injection with 0.05 mg of bevacizumab through subconjunctival. The patients were prospectively followed-up for one month, 3 months and 6 months after the injections. Corneal NV areas, as shown on corneal slit-lamp photographs stored in JPEG format, were calculated using Image J software and use the color spectrum softeare before the injection, one week after the injection, one month, 3 months, and 6 months after the injection. The two analysis methods were compared before and after the injections.

Results:

The mean decrease in corneal NV area one, three and six months after injection were not significant. And Color spectrum method showed higher reproducibility than Image J method

Conclusions:

The mean decrease in corneal NV area one, three and six months after injection were not significant. And Color spectrum method showed higher reproducibility than Image J method
