This retrospective consecutive case series aimed to evaluate spectral-domain optical coherence tomography (SD-OCT) for occult macular disease recognition preoperatively in patients scheduled for routine cataract surgery. All patients scheduled for cataract surgery underwent macular SD-OCT. Scans were reviewed for retinal, retinal pigment epithelium and vitreomacular interface abnormalities. For the subgroup analysis, the following information was collected: age; sex; and diabetes, hypertension, myopia, glaucoma, post intra-ocular surgery, endophotocoagulation, retinal vasculopathy and uveitis statuses. One-thousand-one-hundred-seventy-six consecutive scans were acquired from 1,176 patients. Macular pathology was found in 294 eyes. The most common macular disorders were an epiretinal membrane (n = 130), myopia atrophy (n = 61) and a dome-shaped macular with pathologic myopia (n = 32). One-hundred-thirty eyes (11.05%) presented macular epiretinal membranes not detected by dilated fundus examination, accounting for 44.22% of the abnormalities in diseased eyes and was higher than in previous Chinese studies. Some had multiple macular disorders. The most common ocular history was myopia, including high myopia. The pooled prevalence rate of macular diseases detected by OCT was 0.24 (95% CI 0.14–0.34) using meta-analysis. SD-OCT should be performed for routine cataract surgery patients to evaluate visual outcomes, especially in myopic patients and those considering advanced-technology intraocular lenses.

The purpose of the current study was to investigate the effect of topical atropine on choroidal thickness using spectral-domain optical coherence tomography. A total of 30 healthy eyes from 30 children were analyzed in this study. A single drop of 1% atropine gel was administered twice daily for a week. Choroidal thickness (CT) was measured using SD-OCT, and changes in CT before and after administration of the eye drops were analyzed at the subfovea and at 1.0-mm intervals (up to 3.0 mm) from th...

Abstract This article aims to review recent advances in the understanding of epidemiology and risk factors for the development of myopic choroidal neovascularization (CNV) and highlight the diagnostic features of myopic CNV and signs seen on the noninvasive optical coherence tomography technology, which may be particularly useful for the purpose of screening. Choroidal neovascularization is a sight-threatening complication of pathologic myopia. Because myopic CNV frequently affects individuals d...

To review evidence on the utility of spectral domain optical coherence tomography (SD-OCT) in evaluating retinal structure prior cataract surgery and highlight new technologies that can assess retinal function perioperatively. SD-OCT detected clinically unsuspected macular pathology in 4.6–25% of individuals in the pre-operative cataract evaluation. The most common findings were epiretinal membrane and macular degeneration with frequencies that varied by population studied. These conditions have...
