To investigate the association between visual functions and retinal structure in central serous chorioretinopathy (CSC).
54 eyes of 48 patients were consecutively recruited. The mean age of the patients was 56.5 years and 33 patients were male. The retinal sensitivities were measured using MP3 microperimetry (NIDEK, Japan) and the mean sensitivities within two degrees (MS2), four degrees (MS4) and six degrees (MS6), as well as the foveal sensitivity (MS0), were calculated. Retinal structure was measured using optical coherence tomography (OCT, Spectralis, Heidelberg, Germany). The relationship between visual functions (LogMAR best-corrected visual acuity: BCVA and MS0, MS2, MS4, MS6) and serous retinal detachment height at the fovea (SRDH), central retinal thickness (CRT), macular volume (MV) and central choroidal thickness (CCT) were investigated, using linear mixed model.
SRD was observed in 22 eyes among 54 eyes. There was a significant negative correlation between BCVA and MS0 (p=0.0031), MS2 (p=0.00028), MS4 (p=0.0059) and MS6 (p=0.012). No significant relationship was observed between BCVA and SRD (p=0.72). In contrast, there was a significant negative correlation between SRD and MS4 (p=0.014), MS6 (p=0.039). CCT was not related with any of SRDH, CRT, MV and BCVA (p >0.05).
In CSC, SRDH was significantly related with retinal sensitivity measured with MP3, but not with BCVA.
This is an abstract that was submitted for the 2017 ARVO Annual Meeting, held in Baltimore, MD, May 7-11, 2017.
