    Correlations between Spectral-Domain OCT Measurements and Visual Acuity in Cystoid Macular Edema Associated with Retinitis Pigmentosa

    Purpose. To evaluate the characteristics of spectral-domain optical coherence tomography (SD-OCT) findings associated with visual outcome and compare OCT measurements according to presence of cystoid macular edema (CME) in retinitis pigmentosa (RP) patients. Methods. Patients with typical RP who underwent SD-OCT were included. We compared OCT measurements such as central retinal thickness (CRT), photoreceptor thickness, and photoreceptor inner segment/outer segment (IS/OS) junctional status at the fovea between the CME and non-CME groups. Also, correlations between best-corrected visual acuity (BCVA) and each parameter were determined. Results. Among a total of 220 eyes in 128 RP patients, 46 eyes of ...
