The Posterior Pole and Papillomacular Fold in Posterior Microphthalmos: Novel Spectral-Domain Optical Coherence Tomography Findings – Corrected Proof

Purpose: To report and analyze the spectral-domain optical coherence tomography (SD-OCT) features of the posterior pole and papillomacular fold (PMF) in posterior microphthalmos (PM) in relation to axial length of the globe and corneal power.Design: Comparative case series.Participants: Forty eyes of 20 PM patients and 70 eyes of 35 age-matched controls.Methods: All PM and control eyes underwent a full biometric evaluation, including axial length and corneal power measurements, and macular SD-OCT. In addition, a novel SD-OCT marker of the posterior pole curvature, termed the posterior pole curvature index (PPCI), was measured along both the vertical and horizontal meridians. The OCT characteristics of the (Read more...)
