PURPOSE: To investigate whether subfoveal choroidal thickness, measured using enhanced depth imaging optical coherence tomography (EDI-OCT), is an indicator of subclinical ocular or systemic inflammation in eyes with Behcet disease (BD) without active ocular inflammation. METHODS: A retrospective analysis was used to examine clinical features of non-uveitic patients with BD (NUBD group), patients with a previous history of Behcet uveitis in an inactive state (IUBD group), and healthy controls we...

PURPOSE: To evaluate changes in macular choroidal thickness in eyes with ischemic and nonischemic diabetic maculopathy. METHODS: Cross-sectional study of enhanced depth imaging optical coherence tomography of patients with diabetes. The diabetic eyes were divided into 3 groups: 1) eyes with no diabetic retinopathy (NDR); 2) those with diabetic retinopathy without macular ischemia (DR/MI-); and 3) those with diabetic retinopathy and macular ischemia (DR/MI+). RESULTS: This analysis included 261 e...

Aims To investigate the choroidal thickness changes in eyes with retinal vein occlusion (RVO) and to determine the effect of an intravitreal dexamethasone implant (Ozurdex) on choroidal thickness. Methods This study comprised 47 patients diagnosed with unilateral, RVO-associated macular oedema (MO) and treated with Ozurdex. Baseline subfoveal choroidal thickness (SFCT) and central macular thickness (CMT) of the RVO eyes were compared with those of the normal contralateral eyes; serial changes in...

Abstract Progression of diabetic macular edema has been reported as a common cause of poor visual acuity recovery after cataract surgery in patients with diabetes. Despite being responsible for the blood supply to the outer retina, the role of the choroidal layer in the pathogenesis of diabetic retinopathy (DR) is not yet understood. Our objective is to characterize macular and subfoveal choroidal thickness changes after cataract surgery in eyes with DR. Thirty-five eyes with clinically signific...

Purpose: To identify the correlation between final visual outcome after at least 6 months of follow-up and the extent of macular ischemia on the first visit. Methods: We performed a retrospective clinical analysis of macular ischemia using clinical records, fundus examinations, and fluorescein angiographies in 83 patients (86 eyes) diagnosed with retinal vein occlusion from January 1998 to July 2012 and followed up for over 6 months. We evaluated the extent and the location of macular ischemia, ...

Purpose To evaluate subfoveal choroidal thickness in patients with central retinal vein occlusion (CRVO) using enhanced depth imaging optical coherence tomography. Design Retrospective observational study. Methods We measured bilateral subfoveal choroidal thickness, averaged for 100 scans, in 36 patients (mean age, 66 ± 15 years; 26 women and 10 men) with unilateral CRVO by using the enhanced depth imaging methods of the Spectralis optical coherence tomography system. Twenty-two patients were tr...

PURPOSE. To investigate the relationship between enlargement of the foveal avascular zone (FAZ) and structural changes on spectral-domain optical coherence tomography (SD-OCT) in patients with ischemic diabetic macular edema (DME). METHODS. This was a retrospective, cross-sectional study including 35 eyes of 33 patients with ischemic DME as determined by irregular margins of the FAZ in fluorescein angiography. We measured the best-corrected visual acuity (BCVA), central subfield thickness (CST),...
