    Postoperative Optical Coherence Tomographic Appearance and Relation to Visual Acuity After Vitrectomy for Myopic Foveoschisis

    Purpose To investigate the appearance of postoperative spectral-domain optical coherence tomography (SD-OCT) and the relationship of the findings to visual acuity in myopic foveoschisis. Design Retrospective observational case series. Methods We studied 17 eyes (17 women; mean age, 66.4 years) with myopic foveoschisis. SD-OCT was performed preoperatively and 1, 3, 6, and 12 months after vitrectomy. The average central foveal thickness and choroidal thickness and the integrity of the foveal photoreceptor inner segment/outer segment junction as well as the external limiting membrane were correlated with the postoperative best-corrected visual acuity (BCVA). Results The mean refractive error was −11 ...
