    Macular Thickness in Myopia: An OCT Study of Young Chinese Patients

    Purposes : To investigate macular thickness (MT) in young myopic Chinese patients using Spectralis optical coherence tomography (OCT) and to assess its association with gender, axial length (AL), spherical equivalent (SE), and intraocular pressure (IOP). Methods : Included in this study were 133 myopic Chinese patients, aged 18–30 years. All underwent complete ophthalmic examinations and Spectralis OCT. Inner, central, and outer foveal regions of the macula were measured. Results : The central fovea was the thinnest of the three macular regions (mean thickness, 250.1 ± 15.3 μm). Women had consistently thinner MTs than did men, except in the outer superior and ...
