    Long-term progression of myopic maculopathy in degenerative myopia as imaged by SD-OCT and IR imaging

    Clinical relevance Clinicians can benefit from developing an understanding of the natural disease progression of myopic maculopathy in degenerative myopia using optical coherence tomography (OCT). Background The prevalence of high myopia is constantly increasing. In this work, infrared imaging and OCT is used to study the natural course of the disease. Methods This is a retrospective longitudinal study. Medical records of 72 patients with high myopia (< 6.00 D) and a minimum five-year follow-up period were analysed. Collected data on all enrolled patients included demographic characteristics and medical history, as well as recordings on best-corrected visual acuity, slitlamp examination, OCT ...
