The pattern of vision loss experienced in age-related macular degeneration eyes with subfoveal choroidal neovascularization is uniform across a wide range of clinical trials, with apparent differences in initial and final visual acuity in untreated eyes arising from differences in the time of entry into clinical trials. Our data suggest that visual loss may occur during a preoccult phase of choroidal neovascularization, prior to the development of occult disease.
