    Juxtapapillary Pigment Epithelium Detachment Observed in Asymptomatic Participants using Optical Coherence Tomograph

    Purpose. To use three-dimensional optical coherence tomography (3D-OCT) to assess the prevalence of juxtapapillary retinal pigment epithelial detachments (jPED) in an asymptomatic population. Methods. Asymptomatic participants (i.e. family members of patients) were prospectively recruited over a six-month period. Each subject completed a questionnaire prior to the acquisition of two undilated 45º fundus images and two undilated raster 3D-OCT scans (512x128) covering the macula and optic nerve from each eye using 3D-OCT-1000 (Topcon Co, Tokyo). Fundus images were graded for the presence of peripapillary atrophy (PPA), peripapillary pigment (PPP), drusen in the macula and drusen elsewhere; while 3D-OCT scans were ...
