High myopia, staphyloma associated with macular anatomic abnormalities

Macular anatomic abnormalities were prevalent in eyes with high myopia and posterior staphyloma, according to a study.Investigators used spectral-domain optical coherence tomography to gauge the prevalence of foveoschisis, foveal detachment, vascu­lar traction, epiretinal membrane and macular hole in patients with high myo­pia. They also aimed to determine relationships between macular abnormalities and age, best corrected visual acuity, spherical equivalent, axial length and presence of posterior staphyloma.
