Clinical and Spectral-Domain Optical Coherence Tomography Findings in Patients with Focal Choroidal Excavation – Corrected Proof

Objective: To describe the clinical and spectral-domain optical coherence tomography (SD-OCT) findings in patients with focal choroidal excavation (FCE).Design: Retrospective case series.Participants: Forty-one eyes of 38 patients with FCE identified in 2 tertiary medical centers in Korea.Methods: Clinical features, SD-OCT findings, and associated macular disorders of FCE were analyzed and detailed.Main Outcome Measures: Statistical associations among clinical features, including lesion type, size, and choroidal thickness, and frequency of association with central serous chorioretinopathy (CSC), choroidal neovascularization (CNV), and polypoidal choroidal vasculopathy (PCV).Results: Mean patient age was 50.1 years (range, 25–76 years). The mean spherical equivalent of refractive error was −3.7 diopters (Read more...)
