    Obesity may influence on measurements of choroid thickness in optical coherence tomography

    Introduction and aims: It is known that obesity is associated with retinal microvascular changes. Optical coherence tomography (OCT), a new imaging technique, is used to visualize the choroid. In addition, OCT can also give more beneficial information about systemic and eye diseases. We aim to investigate whether or not obesity may impact on choroid and macula thickness. Material and methods: Forty-four subjects who were apply for obesity in our Endocrinology outpatient clinic [mean age 34.47±8.10 years, body mass index (BMI) 40.11±8.02 kg/m 2 ] and 44 age-matched healthy control subjects (mean age 31.18 ...
