1. Macular Abnormality Observed by Optical Coherence Tomography in Children with Amblyopia Failing to Achieve Normal Visual Acuity After Long-Term Treatment

    Purpose: To investigate why some children with amblyopia fail to achieve normal visual acuity. Methods: Optical coherence tomography (OCT) was performed to observe the morphology of the macular tissue of children with various types of amblyopia who failed to achieve normal visual acuity (< 20/25). Average thickness of the retinal nerve fiber layer (RNFL) of the foveola and fovea (1-mm diameter range) was then assessed by macular retinal tomography map measurement. The data obtained were compared with those considered normal to detect any abnormality. Results: Fifteen patients (24 eyes) were examined. Images showed abnormality with thickened RNFL in the macular ...
