    The Posterior Pole and Papillomacular Fold in Posterior Microphthalmos: Novel Spectral-Domain Optical Coherence Tomography Findings

    Purpose To report and analyze the spectral-domain optical coherence tomography (SD-OCT) features of the posterior pole and papillomacular fold (PMF) in posterior microphthalmos (PM) in relation to axial length of the globe and corneal power. Design Comparative case series. Participants Forty eyes of 20 PM patients and 70 eyes of 35 age-matched controls. Methods All PM and control eyes underwent a full biometric evaluation, including axial length and corneal power measurements, and macular SD-OCT. In addition, a novel SD-OCT marker of the posterior pole curvature, termed the posterior pole curvature index (PPCI), was measured along both the vertical and horizontal ...
