To evaluate the incidence of inadvertent penetration of the sclera and the relation with the high myopia in Korea
236 patients were examined by indirect binocular ophthalmoscope between September 2004 and May 2005. We detected suspected chorioretinal scars in abnormal fundus and studied the relation of between inadvertent penetration of the sclera and amount of the myopia evaluated by cycloplegic refraction before surgery.
Total 236 patients (453 eyes), 99 men (189 eyes), 137 women (264 eye) were evaluated. The duration of follow up was mean 52.42±30.06 months, mean ages was 8.93±3.65 years old. 30 patients (51 eyes) had abnormal fundus. Mild myopic eyes were 27 eyes, moderate myopic eyes were 15 eyes, severe myopic eyes were 9 eyes in the patients had abnormal fundus. 6 patents (8 eyes) had suspected chorioretinal scars. Mild myopic eyes were 3 eyes, moderate myopic eyes were 3 eyes, severe myopic eyes were 2 eyes in the patients had abnormal fundus. The relation of between inadvertent penetration of the sclera and amount of the myopia was weak with statistical significance.
The incidence of inadvertent penetration of the sclera was 1.99% and inadvertent penetration of the sclera was related weak with amount of the myopia.
