Foveal Thickness in Healthy Fellow Eyes of Patients With Unilateral Macular Holes – Corrected Proof

Purpose: To compare the morphologic parameters of ophthalmoscopically and tomographically normal foveae of the fellow eyes of patients with a unilateral macular hole (MH), other unilateral retinal diseases, and healthy eyes.Design: Observational, cross-sectional study.Methods: Of the 849 subjects studied, 183 eyes were excluded because they had an abnormal vitreofoveal interface that might have affected the foveal thickness. The average regional retinal thicknesses of the Early Treatment Diabetic Retinopathy Study sectors determined by spectral-domain optical coherence tomography were compared among 160 patients with MH, 175 patients with epiretinal membrane, 145 patients with retinal vein occlusion, and 186 healthy subjects. The foveal depression (Read more...)
