Abstract null null Objective null To characterize the multimodal retinal findings of myopic macular pits, a feature of myopic degeneration. null null null Methods null A case series of patients with myopic macular pits were studied with multimodal imaging including color fundus photography, fundus autofluorescence (FAF), near infrared reflectance (NIR), spectral domain optical coherence tomography (OCT), optical coherence tomography angiography (OCTA), fluorescein angiography (FA) and indocyanine green angiography (ICG). null null null Results null Nine eyes of 6 patients with myopic macular pit were examined. Four patients presented with multiple pits and 3 with bilateral involvement. All pits were localized in a region of severe macular chorioretinal atrophy associated with myopic posterior staphyloma. In 3 eyes, the entrance of the posterior ciliary artery through the sclera was noted at the base of the pit. Schisis overlying the pit or adjacent to the pit was identified in 3 patients. null null null Conclusion null Myopic macular pits are an additional rare sign of myopic degeneration, developing in regions of posterior staphyloma complicated by severe chorioretinal atrophy and thin sclera.

Purpose Myopia is a common cause of vision loss, with uncorrected myopia the leading cause of distance vision impairment globally. Individual studies show variations in the prevalence of myopia and high myopia between regions and ethnic groups, and there continues to be uncertainty regarding increasing prevalence of myopia. Design Systematic review and meta-analysis. Methods We performed a systematic review and meta-analysis of the prevalence of myopia and high myopia and estimated temporal tren...

Purpose To develop a classification and grading system for myopic maculopathy. Design Development and evaluation of a classification system for myopic maculopathy based on observational case series. Methods A comprehensive set of myopic macular lesions was defined via literature review and through consensus meetings among retinal specialists and clinician scientists. A classification of myopic maculopathy was formulated based on fundus photographs and a modified Delphi process and consensus. Int...

Abstract Objective To develop a novel grading system for posterior staphyloma imaged by spectral-domain optical coherence tomography (SD-OCT) and to correlate the incidence of macular disease (vitreomacular traction, epiretinal membrane, macular schisis, lamellar macular hole, and full-thickness macular hole) with each grade. Design Retrospective chart review. Participants A total of 150 eyes from 89 patients with posterior staphylomas were examined at Jules Stein Eye Institute, University of Ca...

RESULTS. The prevalence of myopia, high myopia, hyperopia and astigmatism in Singapore adults aged over 40 years was 38.9% (95% confidence interval [CI] 37.1, 40.6); 8.4% (95% CI 8.0, 8.9); 31.5% (95% 30.5, 32.5); and 58.8% (95% CI 57.8, 59.9), respectively. Compared with the Tanjong Pagar Survey 12 years ago, there was a significant increase in the prevalence of astigmatism and mean axial length (AL) in Chinese adults aged over 40 years in Singapore. Chinese were most likely to be affected by m...

BACKGROUND: In highly myopic eyes, it is possible to observe the entire thickness of the sclera using swept-source optical coherence tomography. The peculiar scleral alterations observed using swept-source optical coherence tomography within the area of macular chorioretinal atrophy were reported. METHODS: The area of macular chorioretinal atrophy was scanned by swept-source optical coherence tomography in two patients with pathologic myopia. RESULTS: In one of the two patients, three pitlike cl...

Purpose To determine the incidence and characteristics of intrachoroidal cavitations in the macular area of eyes with high myopia. Design Prospective, noninterventional case series. Methods We evaluated 56 eyes of 44 patients with pathologic myopia (myopic spherical equivalent >8 diopters) and with patchy chorioretinal atrophy using a swept-source optical coherence tomographic (OCT) system with a center wavelength of 1050 nm. We focused on the changes in the scleral curvature in the area of patc...

Purpose To examine the incidence and characteristics of pit-like structures around the optic disc and myopic conus in eyes with high myopia. Design Prospective, observational case series. Participants We evaluated 198 eyes of 119 patients with pathologic myopia (spherical equivalent >鈭8 diopters [D]). We also evaluated 32 eyes of 32 subjects with emmetropia (refractive error 鈮ぢ3 D) as controls. Methods The papillary and peripapillary areas were examined with a prototype swept-source optical cohe...
