    Dome-Shaped Macular Configuration: Longitudinal Changes in the Sclera and Choroid by Swept-Source Optical Coherence Tomography Over Two Years

    Purpose To study longitudinal changes in the posterior pole in eyes with dome-shaped macular configuration within the staphyloma. Design Prospective, longitudinal study. Methods We prospectively examined the macular area in 35 eyes (26 patients) with dome-shaped macular configuration and high myopia (mean spherical equivalent, −14.83 ± 4.50 diopters) using swept-source optical coherence tomography. Scleral and choroidal thicknesses were measured at the fovea and four parafoveal locations 2000 μm from the foveal center. Height of the macular bulge was measured as well. Results During the mean follow-up of 24.8 ± 2.5 months, the scleral thickness significantly decreased at the ...
