To compare the clinical features of myopic macular schisis eyes between anatomic stable group and self improved group according to OCT follow up .
Myopic macular schisis eyes during long-term follow up in the High Myopia Rearch Group of Zhongshan Ophthalmic Center, Sun Yat-sen University were divided into two groups according to OCT features. The data of age, visual acuity, axial length, and refractive error was compared between the two groups.
A total of 84 eyes were found anatomic stable, 8 eyes showed spontaneous improvement according to OCT follow up. The mean age was 53.7±10 and 51.8±14 years；mean axial length was 29.61±1.75mm and 28.80±1.03mm (p=0.05)，the mean refractive error was -14.57±4.02 and -10.98±3.56 (p<0.05) respectively. The BCVA in anatomic stable group decreased from 0.53±0.45 in first visit to 0.62±0.56 in last visit (p<0.05), while the BCVA in spontaneous improved group changed from 0.49±0.43 in first visit to 0.64±0.48 in last visit (p>0.05).
The BCVA showed significant decrease in anatomic stable group, while kept stable in self improved group during follow up. Those eyes with a shorter axial length, less severe myopia in younger patients tend to improved spontaneously.
This is an abstract that was submitted for the 2017 ARVO Annual Meeting, held in Baltimore, MD, May 7-11, 2017.
