Postoperative Optical Coherence Tomographic Appearance and Relation to Visual Acuity After Vitrectomy for Myopic Foveoschisis – Corrected Proof

Purpose: To investigate the appearance of postoperative spectral-domain optical coherence tomography (SD-OCT) and the relationship of the findings to visual acuity in myopic foveoschisis.Design: Retrospective observational case series.Methods: We studied 17 eyes (17 women; mean age, 66.4 years) with myopic foveoschisis. SD-OCT was performed preoperatively and 1, 3, 6, and 12 months after vitrectomy. The average central foveal thickness and choroidal thickness and the integrity of the foveal photoreceptor inner segment/outer segment junction as well as the external limiting membrane were correlated with the postoperative best-corrected visual acuity (BCVA).Results: The mean refractive error was −11.9 diopters, axial length 29.7 mm, choroidal thickness 29.9 μm, (Read more...)
