Dear Editor,

We thank the authors for their comments. We agree with the comments regarding other treatment options for polypoidal choroidal vasculopathy (PCV). PDT may be considered alone or in combination with anti-vascular endothelial growth factor (VEGF) drugs. However, anti-VEGF drugs alone also have a significant effect on visual improvement as shown in various studies. As mentioned by the authors, we agree that closure of polyps is an important long-term outcome. In our study, we reported 6 months' results of anti-VEGF monotherapy. Further studies investigating long-term outcome are warranted.
