    Macular Bruch Membrane Holes in Choroidal Neovascularization–Related Myopic Macular Atrophy by Swept-Source Optical Coherence Tomography

    Purpose To determine frequency and associations of macular Bruch membrane defects in the region of macular atrophy developing after the onset of myopic choroidal neovascularization (CNV). Design Retrospective observational case series. Methods The study included all patients who were consecutively examined for high myopia (axial length ≥26.5mm) and CNV-related macular atrophy in the study period from June to July 2015. The patients underwent a comprehensive ophthalmologic examination including swept-source optical coherence tomography (OCT) of the macula. Main outcome measures were macular Bruch membrane defects. Results Out of 33 eyes (28 patients) with myopic CNV-related macular atrophy, 25 eyes (76 ...
