Abstract

Purpose : Retinal sensitivity may decrease in high myopia even without choroidal neovascularization or patchy chorioretinal atrophy. The association between retinal sensitivity and the integrity of retinal pigment epithelium (RPE) has not been studied in detail. In the present study, we investigated the association between retinal sensitivity and optical depolarization at the RPE layer measured by Polarization-Sensitive Optical Coherence Tomography (PS-OCT) in patients with high myopia.

Methods : Among patients who visited at University of Tokyo Hospital, 23 highly myopic eyes (age, 66.6±12.3) without history of choroidal neovascularization or patchy chorioretinal atrophy, were included. High myopia was defined as a refractive error of less than -8.0 diopters (D) or an axial length of 26.5 mm or longer. Retinal sensitivity was measured by microperimetry in 25 points within 8 degrees from the fovea. Depolarization was measured by a clinical prototype of PS-OCT. RPE layer was automatically segmented and enface depolarization map was exported. 25 sectors corresponding to the point measured by microperimetry was overlaid to the depolarization map and the mean value in each sector was calculated. We used mixed model to investigate the association between retinal sensitivity, age, axial length, degree of depolarization in the RPE, choroidal thickness, and retinal thickness.

Results : The average and deviation of retinal sensitivity, axial length, choroidal thickness, and retinal thickness was 25.3±1.7dB, 29.6±1.6mm, 82.5±30.7µm and 263.0±33.9µm, respectively. Axial length (β=-0.53 [-0.92 to -0.13], p=0.01), degree of depolarization in the RPE (β=5.0 [1.1 to 9.0], p=0.01) and retinal thickness (β=0.0057 [0.00077 to 0.011], p=0.02) were significantly associated with retinal sensitivity.

Conclusions : Retinal sensitivity and depolarization in the RPE measured with PS-OCT may be associated in patients with high myopia.
