    Effects of myopia on different areas and layers of the macula: a fourier-domain optical coherence tomography study of a chinese cohort

    Background To explore the changes in thickness in different areas and layers of the macula under different refractive conditions. Methods Consecutive participants were enrolled in the study. Optical coherence tomography (OCT) images were obtained using a spectral-domain system. We studied the relationships of the full, inner and outer retinal thicknesses of the fovea, parafovea and perifovea relative to the spherical equivalent (SE) and axial length (AL). Results We included 107 eyes; the analysis revealed that the men had thicker foveas (man vs women: 236.70 ± 18.97 μm vs 247.25 ± 16.70 μm P  = 0.002) and inner parafoveas ...
