To investigate the relationship between choroidal thickness in eyes with choroidal folds.
This was an observational study in an academic private practice. Thirteen patients (18 eyes) with choroidal folds from various pathologies with an average age of 63 years (age range 32-88) were examined. Subfoveal choroidal thickness of each eye was measured using spectral-domain enhanced depth imaging optical coherence tomography. ETDRS BCVA was also recorded.
The average subfoveal choroidal thickness (SFCT) was calculated to be 330.55 microns ± 145.94. A mean logMAR BCVA was 0.228 ± 0.221. The mean subfoveal choroidal thickness was greater in eyes with choroidal folds compared to age-matched controls in a previously published study1, p= 0.0051.
The subfoveal choroidal thickness in eyes with choroidal folds was found to be greater than normal age-matched controls and may be an important feature to measure when evaluating these eyes with enhanced depth imaging SD-OCT.
