A white woman in her late 70s presented with an asymptomatic choroidal macrovessel in the right eye in the setting of non-neovascular age-related macular degeneration (AMD) (Figure).1,2 The patient had a family history of AMD and her medical history was significant for cataract surgery in both eyes, hypothyroidism, migraine headaches, chronic pancreatitis, and urinary incontinence. Her medications included Age-Related Eye Disease Study 2 vitamin supplementation. Her best-corrected visual acuity was stable at 20/30 OU and intraocular pressure was normal at 15 mm Hg OD and 13 mm Hg OS. Non-neovascular AMD was present in the left eye as well.
