    Macular Thickness Variations with Sex, Age, and Axial Length in Healthy Subjects: A Spectral Domain-Optical Coherence Tomography Study
    Purpose. To assess the relationship between macular retinal thickness and volume and age, sex, and refractive error/axial length with spectral domain–optical coherence tomography (SD-OCT). Methods. One randomly selected eye of 198 consecutive ophthalmically normal subjects (104 men, 94 women) between July 2008 and January 2009, with corrected visual acuities better than 20/30 were included in this cross-sectional study. Complete ophthalmic examination, axial length measurement with a laser interferometer, and macular cube 512 x 128 scan by SD-OCT were performed. Results. The mean age was 55.6 ± 16.4 years (range, 17–83), average refractive error was –2 ...
