Abstract

Neovascular membranes that lie under the geometric center of the foveal avascular zone are larger than neovascular membranes completely outside the foveal avascular zone. Thirty-eight (66%) of 58 subfoveal membranes were greater than 1500 microns in diameter while only seven (12%) of 58 extrafoveal membranes were greater than 1500 microns (P
