    Ultra-widefield optical coherence tomographic imaging of posterior vitreous in eyes with high myopia

    Purpose To investigate the morphological changes of posterior vitreous in highly myopic (HM) eyes of patients older than 50 years. Design Retrospective, observational case series. Methods Ultra-widefield swept-source OCT (UWF-OCT) examinations were performed on 768 eyes of 448 HM patients (50- to 89-years) and 54 eyes of 52 non-HM subjects with scan width of 23 mm and depth of 5 mm. HM was defined as an axial length longer than 26.5 mm. The area and morphology of the posterior vitreous detachments (PVDs) and adhesions onto retinal vessels were examined for 167 HM eyes and 11 non-HM eyes in which ...
