To measure macular choroidal thickness (CT) in fellow eyes of patients with central serous chorioretinopathy, using enhanced depth imaging optical coherence tomography (EDI OCT).
This is a descriptive, cross-sectional study. A total of 32 eyes of 16 patients were evaluated. Sixteen volunteers with central serous corioretinopathy (CSC) diagnosis underwent high-definition scanning using SD-OCT (RTVue) with enhanced depth imaging technique (EDI OCT) in both eyes. One horizontal enhanced depth imaging spectral-domain OCT scan across the fovea was selected for each affected and healthy eye, five CT messurements were taken for each scan. The average choroidal thickness was also calculated and compared among eyes with CSC and fellow eyes.
Mean age of 40 +/- 7 (Range between 29 and 56 years old). Fifteen of 16 symptomatic eyes where right eyes, and 2 woman and 14 men were involved. The mean choroidal thickness in symptomatic eyes was 470.4 +/- 35.7 μm, and the fellow eyes thickness was 413.4 +/- 47.1 μm. The matching shows a high correlation (0,979) between paired samples and statistical significance of its correlation (p<0.001)
Enhanced depth imaging spectral-domain optical coherence tomography is a helpful tool for assessing choroidal thickness in fellow eyes of patients with CSC, where the choroid is as thickened as in affected eyes.
