    Optical Coherence Tomographic Imaging of Posterior Episclera and Tenon's Capsule

    Purpose : To investigate structural features of the posterior episclera and Tenon's capsule in patients with high myopia. Methods : This hospital-based observational study included highly myopic eyes (myopic refractive error > −8 diopters or axial length ≥26.5 mm) in which the posterior sclera in its full thickness could be visualized on swept-source optical coherence tomography (OCT) images in all 12 radial scans centered on the fovea. We assessed the posterior episclera and Tenon's capsule. Results : The study included 278 eyes of 175 patients (mean age, 60.9 ± 11.4 years; range, 32–89 years; axial length, 30.7 ± 1 ...
