    Subfoveal Choroidal Vascularity in Myopia: Evidence From Spectral-Domain Optical Coherence Tomography

    BACKGROUND AND OBJECTIVE: To evaluate subfoveal choroidal vascularity in eyes with myopia in comparison to age-matched healthy subjects. PATIENTS AND METHODS: Retrospective analysis of single foveal enhanced depth imaging optical coherence tomography (EDI-OCT) scans of 30 eyes with myopia (axial length greater than 25 mm). Subfoveal choroidal vascularity was evaluated by calculating vessel-area-to-stromal-area ratio using a previously validated automated algorithm. RESULTS: The subfoveal stromal area was significantly smaller in myopes (0.95 mm 3 ± 0.22 mm 3 ) compared to controls (1.33 mm 3 ± 0.23 mm 3 ; P < .0001). However, there was no significant difference in vascular area ...
