1. En Face Optical Coherence Tomography of the Posterior Pole in High Myopia.

    PURPOSE: To evaluate a large series of patients affected by high myopia using multiplanar imaging provided by en face optical coherence tomography (OCT). DESIGN: Observational cross-sectional study. METHODS: En face OCT longitudinal cross-sectional B scans and coronal C scans were obtained in 200 eyes of 100 patients with myopia greater than -6 diopters and evidence of posterior staphyloma at fundus examination and at ultrasound B-scan evaluation. RESULTS: A macular hole was present in three eyes (1.5%). We detected posterior retinal detachment in 37 cases (18.5%). In 15 eyes (7.5%) detachment was associated with a macular hole. In ...
