    Macular Choroidal Thickening in Keratoconus Patients: Swept-Source Optical Coherence Tomography Study

    Purpose : To determine the choroidal thickness (CT) profile in keratoconus (KC) patients using swept-source optical coherence tomography (SS-OCT). Methods : This was a prospective, cross-sectional study. One hundred two eyes of 52 KC patients were studied using Pentacam and SS-OCT. The macular CT profile was created by manually measuring the distance between the retinal pigment epithelium and the choroid-sclera junction on horizontal b-scans at nine different macular locations. The results were compared to 93 eyes of 93 healthy controls. Results : Mean age of the KC group was 34.9 ± 13.5 years and mean axial length (AL) was 24.1 ± 1 ...
