BCVA – best-corrected visual acuity; B-K – Busacca-Koeppe; IOP – intraocular pressure; SD-OCT – spectral domain optical coherence tomography; ‘+’ – present; ‘–‘ – absent; ‘+/–‘ – moderate presence. # The fundus examination showed a normal optic disc, foveal region, and retinal vessels for all of the 12 months.
