1. Subclinical foveal hypoplasia in normal children detected by OCT

    Introduction: Foveal hypoplasia is usually associated with significant visual dysfunction and an absent foveal reflex on biomicroscopy. Optical coherence tomography(OCT) easily provides accurate images of the foveal anatomy. Among a group of normal children having OCT for the development of a normative database (Arch Ophthalmol 2009;127), we identified a few with underdeveloped foveal architecture despite normal clinical examination. This study's purpose is to characterize the prevalence and features of subclinical foveal hypoplasia in the eyes of normal children.
