To investigate the relationship between subfoveal choroidal thickness and disease manifestation in a series of eyes with nonexudative age-related macular degeneration (AMD). Retrospective study of eyes with nonexudative AMD. The extracellular deposits present, drusen and subretinal drusenoid deposits (SDD, pseudodrusen) along with a newly recognized form of drusen, pachydrusen, were graded and compared with choroidal thickness as determined by optical coherence tomography. Demographic and imagin...

Purpose To determine the prevalence and associations of central serous chorioretinopathy (CSC) in elderly Chinese. Methods The population-based cross-sectional Beijing Eye Study 2011 included 3468 individuals (age: 64.6 ± 9.8 years; range: 50–93 years), who underwent enhanced depth imaging of spectral-domain optical coherence tomography (SD-OCT).

Abstract Central serous chorioretinopathy (CSCR) is a major cause of vision threat among middle-aged male individuals. Multimodal imaging led to the description of a wide range of CSCR manifestations, and highlighted the contribution of the choroid and pigment epithelium in CSCR pathogenesis. However, the exact molecular mechanisms of CSCR have remained uncertain. The aim of this review is to recapitulate the clinical understanding of CSCR, with an emphasis on the most recent findings on epidemi...

To assess the changes in intraocular pressure (IOP) with age in South Korea Subjects aged 20–79 who had been receiving health examinations at a university hospital were enrolled. They completed physical and ophthalmic examinations. Subjects with ocular disease that could possibly affect their IOP were excluded. The relationships between IOP and age, blood pressure, heart rate, body mass index, blood chemistry, and electrolyte were analyzed using a linear mixed model. Of the 33 712 subjects, 31 8...

Purpose To characterize punctate hyperfluorescence spot as common choroidopathy in central serous chorioretinopathy (CSC) and polypoidal choroidal vasculopathy (PCV). Design Cross-sectional retrospective study. Methods A total of 150 patients with 50 each allocated to CSC, PCV, and typical neovascular age-related macular degeneration (AMD) groups were included. Punctate hyperfluorescence spot was determined using mid-to late-phase indocyanine green angiography and subfoveal choroidal thickness b...

PURPOSE: To describe characteristics of central serous chorioretinopathy (CSC) imaged by optical coherence tomography-assisted enhanced depth imaging (EDI-OCT). METHODS: The prospective observational case series study consisted of patients with acute or chronic CSC. All subjects underwent fundus fluorescein angiography, indocyanine green angiography (ICGA), and EDI-OCT. RESULTS: The study included 68 eyes (68 patients) with 35 eyes showing signs of acute CSC. Mean subfoveal choroidal thickness, ...

Purpose null To describe myopic nontractional foveal detachment associated with pachychoroid diseases. null Methods null This retrospective study included 15 myopic eyes which had nontractional serous foveal detachment. The eyes were divided into myopic central serous chorioretinopathy (CSC) group (n = 8) and a myopic pachychoroid neovascularization (PNV) group (n = 7) according to the presence of type 1 choroidal neovascularization on multimodal imaging. The findings of multimodal imaging and t...

PURPOSE To describe an unusual variant of central serous chorioretinopathy (CSC) presenting as a choroidal elevation with subretinal fluid and its response to accepted treatment modalities of CSC. DESIGN A retrospective case series. SUBJECTS Six eyes of three patients, two males and one female, with a mean age of 55.3 years, were included in the study. All of them had Pachychoroid features, solitary choroidal elevation and subretinal fluid on optical coherence tomography (OCT); none of the patie...

This study aimed to identify the clinical characteristics and longitudinal changes in exudative pachychoroid neovasculopathy (PNV) and non-exudative PNV. This retrospective cohort study involved 81 eyes of PNV diagnosed by multimodal imaging including optical coherence tomography angiography. At baseline, they were divided into exudative PNV group and non-exudative PNV group depending on the presence of subretinal fluid. The clinical features of both groups and the longitudinal changes were inve...

Purpose To survey the pachychoroid spectrum literature to determine how the component diseases are defined. Methods English language articles mentioning pachychoroid, pachychoroid pigment epitheliopathy, pachychoroid neovasculopathy, peripapillary pachychoroid syndrome, and pachyvessels from 1 January 2013 until 31 March 2020 were included. The disease definitions from the Methods sections were evaluated. Definitions were then grouped, if possible, by shared traits. Two definitions were consider...

PURPOSE: To evaluate if the retrobulbar blood flow variables were deteriorated in central serous chorioretinopathy (CSC) patients. METHODS: We included 25 CSC patients and 25 healthy subjects. We used color Doppler ultrasonography to assess the ophthalmic artery (OA), the central retinal artery (CRA), and the posterior ciliary arteries (PCA) for peak systolic velocity (PSV), end-diastolic velocity (EDV), and resistance index (RI). RESULTS: Mean ages of the patients and controls were 42.3 +/- 8.5...

Background: It has been recommended that any invasive treatment performed in patients with central serous chorioretinopathy (CSCR) not be initiated earlier than four months after disease onset due to the potential for spontaneous remission of symptoms. The goal of this study was to examine the outcome of transfoveal subthreshold micropulse laser treatment (SMPLT) of CSCR performed at six months or less after disease onset. Materials and methods: The study included 32 cases of CSCR lasting betwee...
