    Analysis of choroidal thickness in eyes treated with focal laser photocoagulation using SD-OCT

    Objective To analyze the effect of focal laser photocoagulation on choroidal thickness in patients with diabetic macular edema (DME), using spectral-domain optical coherence tomography (SD-OCT). Design Retrospective review. Participants Twenty-two eyes of 22 patients diagnosed with DME and treated with focal laser photocoagulation (treatment group) and 19 fellow treatment-naive eyes (control group) who underwent high-definition 1-line raster scanning using the Cirrus SD-OCT at the New England Eye Center, Tufts Medical Center (Boston, Mass.) between November 2009 and April 2012. Methods The SD-OCT images were analyzed for the measurement of choroidal thickness by 2 independent observers experienced in analyzing OCT images ...
