    Quantitative assessment of the retinal microvasculature and choriocapillaris in myopic patients using swept-source optical coherence tomography angiography

    Purpose To study the retinal capillary microvasculature and the choriocapillaris (CC) in myopic eyes using swept-source optical coherence tomography angiography (SS-OCTA). Methods Patients with high myopia (≥ − 6D; axial length ≥ 26.5 mm), moderate myopia (≥ − 3D, < − 6D), and age-matched healthy subjects presenting to the Shanghai General Hospital and Doheny-UCLA Eye Centers were enrolled in this prospective, multicenter study. Any subjects with evidence of macular abnormalities suggestive of pathologic myopia were excluded. SS-OCTA at both sites was performed using a Zeiss PLEX Elite instrument with a 6 × 6 mm scan pattern centered on the fovea. Two repeated volume scans were acquired ...
