To characterize the vitreoretinal interface abnormalities in patients with history of retinopathy of prematurity (ROP).
A single center, retrospective chart review was performed of 43 consecutive patients with history of ROP who have undergone spectral domain optical coherence tomography (SD-OCT) imaging. Eyes with history of stage 5 ROP, time domain-OCT or uninterpretable SD-OCT images were excluded.
Sixty seven eyes of 43 patients (median age, 27.5 years; range, 10-69) were imaged. Median visual acuity was 20/50 (range, 20/30 – hand motions). Mean foveal thickness and subfoveal choroidal thickness measured 293.38 ± 60.2 SD and 232.42 ± 85.3 SD, respectively. Foveal hypoplasia with persistent inner retinal foveal layers was observed in 63% of eyes. Epiretinal membrane-like dense hyaloidal organization was seen in 51%. Inner retinal schisis and vitreomacular traction was observed in in 21% and 6% of eyes, respectively. Thickening of the inner retinal layers was seen in 15%.
Vitreoretinal interface abnormalities are common in older patients with a history of ROP.
