To evaluate the long-term therapeutic effects of intravitreal bevacizumab on myopic choroidal neovascularization (CNV). METHODS: Medical records of 6 patients who underwent intravitreal bevacizumab injection for myopic CNV and were followed for more than 2 years, were retrospectively investigated. The best corrected visual acuity was compared at 1,3,12, and 24 months after injection. Two years after the injection, a fluorescein angiography and optical coherence tomography (OCT) were performed to evaluate the central macular thickness and leakage of CNV. RESULTS: The mean best corrected visual acuity was 1.16 +/- 0.43 (logMAR), 0.45 +/- 0.21 (logMAR), 0.29 +/- 0.23 (logMAR), 0.14 +/- 0.11 (logMAR), and 0.11 +/- 0.06 (logMAR) at baseline, 1, 3, 12, and 24 months after injection, respectively. CONCLUSIONS: Intravitreal bevacizumab injection for the treatment of myopic CNV was effective in maintaining postoperative visual acuity for 2 years.
