    Standard 6 mm Compared to Wide Field 16.5 mm Optical Coherence Tomography for Staging of Posterior Vitreous Detachment

    Objective To assess whether 6 mm optical coherence tomography (OCT) scans, which image the macula, can distinguish complete from partial posterior vitreous detachment (PVD) in comparison to 16.5 mm OCT scans, which image the macula, optic nerve, and midperiphery. Design Retrospective cross-sectional study. Subjects We compared 6 mm and 16.5 mm scans in 157 eyes of 157 retina clinic patients (mean age 50 years; range 10–64) with diabetic retinopathy (36%), no retinal disease (19%), and various retinal conditions (55%). We analyzed 16.5 mm scans in 35 normal eyes (asymptomatic fellow eyes of unilateral retinal conditions; mean ...
