To investigate the characteristic of anterior segment measurements in eyes with central serous chorioretinopathy (CSC).
This cross sectional study retrospectively included consecutive patients who were diagnosed as unilateral CSC. Spectral domain optical coherence tomography and fluorescein angiography were obtained for a diagnosis. Best-corrected visual acuity (BCVA), refractive error, axial length, and anterior chamber depth (ACD) were evaluated. Acute CSC was defined as CSC with symptom duration of less than 6 months.
The 53 subjects had a mean age of 42.9±7.70 years and 39 (73.6%) of the patients were male. Between CSC eyes and fellow eyes, the differences in refractive error and adjusted axial length were not significant (P=0.995 and P=0.212, respectively). However, BCVA was worse (P<0.001) and ACD was shallower in CSC eyes than fellow eyes by 0.032±0.0875 mm (P=0.011). Forty-six (86.8%) eyes had acute CSC and 7 (13.2%) eyes had chronic CSC. ACD was shallower in acute CSC eyes than fellow eyes by 0.038±0.0881 mm (P=0.005). However, the difference in ACD was not significant between chronic CSC eyes and fellow eyes (P=0.932).
ACD was shallower in eyes with acute CSC. In the early stage, CSC may influence the anterior ocular configuration including ACD.
