    Swept-source optical coherence tomography study of choroidal morphology in Stargardt disease

    BACKGROUND: Stargardt disease, a juvenile retinal dystrophy, may show secondary changes in the choroid which may have importance while considering future treatments such as stem cell transplant. OBJECTIVE: To evaluate the choroidal and retinal morphology in patients with Stargardt disease and compare with age-matched normals. SETTING AND DESIGN: This was a case–control study at a tertiary level eye care institute. METHODS: Twenty-six patients (52 eyes) clinically diagnosed with Stargardt disease underwent detailed evaluation with swept-source optical coherence tomography. Retinal and choroidal layers were analyzed and compared with 52 eyes of controls. RESULTS: The median age of patients with Stargardt ...
