    Retinal Vascular Changes during the Menstrual Cycle Detected with Optical Coherence Tomography Angiography

    Purpose. To evaluate the effects of the menstrual cycle on the retinal vascular status of healthy women by optical coherence tomography angiography (OCTA). Materials and Methods. Healthy women with regular natural menstrual cycles of 28 to 30 days were recruited for this prospective study. The women’s retinal vascular status was measured by OCTA at 3 time points: the early follicular, ovulatory, and midluteal phases of the menstrual cycle. The main outcome measures were foveal avascular zone (FAZ) parameters, perfusion density (PD) percentage in the superficial retinal capillary plexus (SCP), and PD percentage in the deep retinal capillary plexus (DCP ...
