We performed argon laser photocoagulation on 31 eyes of 30 patients with presumed ocular histoplasmosis. Nineteen of 25 eyes (76%) with neovascular membranes 0.25 disk diameter or further from the fovea had 6 12 ( 20 40) or better vision after an average follow-up period of 20 months. Twenty-two of these eyes (88%) had the same or improved visual acuity during this period. When compared to a similar group of untreated eyes, the apparent advantage of photocoagulation in preserving visual acuity was not statistically significant.
