Abstract

Purpose:: To report macular changes in ROP

Design:: Prospective Study

Participants:: Eleven patients (16 eyes)

Methods:: Eleven patients with documented prematurity were contacted and were imaged with OCT

Results:: Findings included absence of a foveal pit, retinal thickening and anterior displacement of the outer retinal layers

Conclusions:: OCT may demonstrate abnormal macular changes even when vision appears to be unaffected.OCT in ROP (Title)Previous Studies (Stage 4A)•Joshi, Trese & CaponeOphthalmology 2006•PatelAJO 2006Present Study•11 patients, 16 eyes•Age range 7-57 yrs-- Average 35 yrs-- Median 27 yearsMacular Changes•Absence of foveal pit•Retinal thickening•Displacement of outer retinal layers anteriorlyConclusions•Absence of foveal pit•Retinal thickening•Displacement of outer retinal layers anteriorlySelected ophthalmologic occurrences from the 1940’s to the present
