    Paravascular abnormalities observed by spectral domain optical coherence tomography are risk factors for retinoschisis in eyes with high myopia

    Purpose To investigate the retinal features and distribution of paravascular abnormalities (PVAs) and their relationship with retinoschisis in eyes with high myopia. Methods One hundred and fifty-two eyes of 88 patients with high myopia [refractive error greater than −6 dioptres (D) or axial length (AL) ≥26.5 mm] who had undergone comprehensive ophthalmic examinations were evaluated in this cross-sectional study. Multiple optical coherence tomography (OCT) scans were performed to study the microstructural alterations adjacent to the retinal vascular arcades and the entire macular area. The presence and distribution patterns of various PVAs, retinoschisis and the association between these parameters were ...
