    Choroidal observations in posterior scleritis using high-penetration optical coherence tomography

    To investigate the choroidal morphologic changes in two patients with posterior scleritis. We used high-penetration optical coherence tomography (HP-OCT) in vivo with a long-wavelength light source (1,060 nm) to view the choroidal changes. In patient 1 with unilateral scleritis, the subfoveal choroidal thickness of the right eye was 418 μm with a serous retinal detachment (SRD) at the initial visit. The treatment regimen was prednisolone 30 mg/day, and the posterior scleritis resolved. Follow-up HP-OCT showed the following choroidal thicknesses—266 μm on day 27 with no SRD, 245 μm on day 69, and 200 μm on day 216 ...
