Rights and Permissions

Reactive macular edema can occur following photodynamic therapy (PDT) in patients who have undergone fluorescein angiography (FA) on the same day. It might be better not to perform PDT on the same day of FA to avoid side effects. The safety interval between FA and PDT should be at least 24 hours, considering fluorescein retention in the body.
