    High myopia and macular vascular density: an optical coherence tomography angiography study

    Objective: To investigate whether there are differences inmacular vascular density (VD) between patients with high-myopia (HM) and those with non-high myopia (NHM) using Optical Coherence Tomography Angiography (OCTA). Method: OCTA was performed on 35 eyes with HM with spherical equivalence (SE) > - 6.00D and 35 eyes with NHM with SE ≤ -6.00D. Vascular densities of the macula (overall macula, fovea, parafovea, superior hemi and inferior hemi) were measured in each of the superficial, deep and choriocapillaris layers of the retina. Results: In the superficial retinal layer, overall macular VFD was significantly higher in the NHM compared to the HM group ...
