    Prevalence, risk factors and impact of posterior staphyloma diagnosed from wide‐field optical coherence tomography in Singapore adults with high myopia

    Purpose To investigate the prevalence and risk factors of posterior staphyloma using wide‐field optical coherence tomography (WF‐OCT) in adults with high myopia in Singapore. Design Population‐based cross‐sectional study. Methods Adults with spherical equivalent (SE) ≤ −5D in either eye at the first visit of Singapore Epidemiology of Eye Diseases study and Singapore Prospective Study Program study were recruited. Posterior staphyloma was diagnosed using WF‐OCT (PLEX ® Elite9000, Carl Zeiss Meditec). Myopic macular degeneration (MMD), myopic traction maculopathy (MTM) and vision‐related quality of life (VRQoL) were assessed using fundus photographs, DRI‐Triton OCT (Topcon) and the Impact ...
