    Evaluation of the Choroidal Thickness Using High-Penetration Optical Coherence Tomography With Long Wavelength in Highly Myopic Normal-Tension Glaucoma
    Purpose: To evaluate the choroidal thickness by high-penetration optical coherence tomography (OCT) using long wavelength in highly myopic normal-tension glaucoma (NTG). Design: Cross-sectional retrospective study. Methods: settings: Institutional. participants: Twelve eyes from 8 patients under 45 years old, diagnosed as NTG without any other ocular diseases, spherical equivalent refractive error between −6 and −12 diopters, and axial length greater than 26.5 mm; and 12 eyes of matched healthy volunteers. intervention: Choroid was imaged with prototype high-penetration OCT and its thickness was measured. main outcome measures: Choroidal thickness at the fovea and 5 locations: 2 mm superior, temporal, and inferior ...
