Indocyanine green angiography (ICGA) and optical coherence tomography (OCT) imaging of a 71 year old Asian man with bilateral polypoidal choroidal vasculopathy (PCV) who was followed for 35 months. Early and late ICGA images show central macular polyp OD and superior macula polypoidal lesion with central macular choroidal vascular dilation OS. Cross-sectional OCT scan images show pigment epithelial detachments, double layer sign (branching vascular network) and thick choroid in both eyes. Best corrected visual acuity (BCVA) upon initial diagnosis with PCV was 65 letters OD and 57 letters OS. Vision worsened to 12 letters at last follow up visit OD after treatment with 4 and 9 intravitreal injections with bevacizumab and aflibercept, respectively. Left eye received 4 and 10 intravitreal injections with bevacizumab and aflibercept respectively and vision improved to 66 letters
