Abstract

Purpose: To evaluate the choroidal thickness at 5 sites in two siblings with high hyperopia using Swept Source-OCT (SS-OCT).

Methods: Two siblings (4 eyes) with high hyperopia. Case 1: a 51-year-old woman with high hyperopia (Right: +20.5 Dioptors (D), Left: +19.5 D). The axial lengths were 15.6 mm in the right eye, 15.6 mm in the left.<br /> Case 2: a 55-year-old man with high hyperopia (Right: +22.5 D, Left: +22.8 D). The axial lengths were 14.8 mm in the right eye, 14.7 mm in the left.<br /> Choroidal thickness was measured at 5 sites in each eye using SS-OCT; subfoveal, nasal, temporal, superior and inferior (the 4 sites other than subfoveal were measured 3,000 µm from the fovea).

Results: The mean choroidal thickness was 355.8 ± 63.6 μm at the subfoveal, 466.3 ± 85.1 μm at the nasal, 274.8 ± 77.2 μm at the temporal, 396.8 ± 54.6 μm at the superior, and 480.8 ± 66.8 μm at the inferior site (mean ± SD).

Conclusions: The maximum choroidal thickness was at the inferior site. The choroid was thin at the nasal, superior, subfoveal and temporal sites, in that order.
