Abstract At present no satisfying treatment for subfoveal choroidal neovascularization (CNV) secondary to age-related macular degeneration (AMD) is available. Visual results after successful surgical removal of subfoveal CNV are disappointing. This has been explained by a primary dysfunction of the retinal pigment epithelium (RPE) in the macular region and the surgical trauma to the RPE in patients with AMD. Therefore, Machemer and Steinhorst developed a technique for macular translocation after surgical removal of subfoveal CNV. We report our first experiences with this technique in patients with subfoveal CNV secondary to AMD.
