The visual prognosis of 148 eyes in patients with an active subfoveal or juxtafoveal subretinal neovascular membrane (SRNVM) in the presumed ocular histoplasmosis syndrome (PONS) was reviewed. Average follow-up was 39 months. One hundred twenty of 148 eyes (81.1%) had a final visual acuity worse than 20/40. One hundred three of 148 eyes (69.6%) had a final visual acuity equal to or worse than 20/200. Systemic and/or periocular steroids had no effect on final visual outcome. Factors affecting final visual outcome are described and prognosis in the fellow eye is discussed.
