  • Retinal Telangiectasia

    We are reporting the case of a 51-year-old man with a 5-year history of decrease vision in his right eye associated with metamorphopsia.[] Results: Of 91 patients, 72 (79%) reported impaired reading ability as their first symptom, followed by metamorphopsia in 12%.[] Photocoagulation should be used sparingly to reduce the chance of producing a symptomatic paracentral scotoma and metamorphopsia.[]

  • Serpiginous Choroiditis

    A 58-year-old female with bilateral serpiginous choroiditis developed right-sided blurred vision and metamorphopsia.[] A 41-year-old woman presented with decreased vision and metamorphopsia in her right eye, which was diagnosed as a recurrence of serpiginous choroiditis at the first visit.[] Pars plana vitrectomy, membrane peel, and gas tamponade resulted in right macular hole closure, visual acuity improvement (6/18) and resolution of metamorphopsia.[]

  • Myopic Macular Degeneration

    Central scotomas (shadows or missing areas of vision) Distorted vision (i.e. metamorphopsia) - A grid of straight lines appears wavy and parts of the grid may appear blank[] Patients with myopic foveoschisis might be asymptomatic in the early stage and in the later stage can develop progressive increases in metamorphopsia and visual loss as the[] […] internal limiting membrane (ILM) peeling (with or without gas tamponade) is the main treatment for myopic foveoschisis. 10-13 Surgery is indicated in patients with symptomatic metamorphopsia[]

  • Birdshot Chorioretinopathy

    A 51-year-old African American woman presented with a 10-year history of photopsia, progressive decrease in visual acuity, metamorphopsia, and new nyctalopia.[] […] chorioretinopathy in an African American patient.Methods:A 51-year-old African American woman presented with a 10-year history of photopsia, progressive decrease in visual acuity, metamorphopsia[] Patients often present with gradual deterioration of vision, floaters, photopsia, scotoma, nyctalopia, metamorphopsia and poor color and contrast sensitivity.[]
