Choroidal folds

Choroidal folds are undulations of the choroid, Bruch’s membrane and pigment epithelium, with wrinkling of the overlying retina. They may be idiopathic but can also be caused by a number of different conditions. Case report A 60-year-old male patient was...

Choroidal thickness in strabismus and amblyopia

The authors examined the effect of exotropia, esotropia, anisometropic amblyopia and hypermetropia on choroidal thickness in a prospective cross section study. The study included 100 patients and 20 controls with a mean age of 8.5±2.9 years; 61 female and 59...

Choroidal defects in neurofibromatosis

The aim of this study was to investigate the frequency of choroidal abnormalities using infrared reflectance imaging with optical coherence tomography (OCT) in paediatric patients with neurofibromatosis (NF) type 1. Thirty-eight eyes of 19 patients were reviewed. NF1 was diagnosed...

Subfoveal choroidal thickness and PCV

This report studies the prognostic factors for visual improvement and the need for additional treatments at one year after the initial combination therapy of intravitreal ranibizumab injection or intravitreal aflibercept injection followed by PDT in eyes with PCV. Fifty-six eyes...

Amblyopic choroidal thickness

The authors studied choroidal thickness in 38 paediatric cases (76 eyes) with unilateral amblyopia to evaluate the differences between amblyopic and fellow eyes, and compare them with 19 healthy control subjects (38 eyes). Anisometropic amblyopia was present in 17 cases...

Choroidal vascularity in NAION

The authors present a cross-sectional, non-interventional study of healthy volunteers and those with non-arteritic anterior ischaemic optic neuropathy (NAION) recruited over a six-month period at a single site. NAION is the most common cause of acute optic neuropathy over the...

Myopic choroidal neovascularisation

This is a review article summarising the latest myopic CNV (choroidal neovascularisation) literature in the clinical experience and management outcomes for recommendation algorithm. The aetiology of the myopic CNV was discussed by the authors under the heading of the heredo-degenerative...

Choroidal and RNFL thickness in patients with OSAS

In obstructive sleep apnoea syndrome (OSAS), hypoxia secondary to repetitive apnoeic episodes leads to blood pressure variations and haemodynamic changes. There is also intermittent activation of the sympathetic system when the patient is aroused from sleep during apnoeic episodes. OSAS...

Choroidal melanoma – breaking bad news

Case report A 55-year-old Caucasian female presented to her general practitioner with a three-month history of headaches and worsening blurred vision in the left eye. On further close questioning, she reported no eye pain, intermittent floaters and flashes of light...

Aflibercept treatment in polypoidal choroidal vasculopathy

The authors present a study to evaluate the anatomical and functional efficacy of aflibercept intravitreal (IVT) as a monotherapy in polypoidal choroidal vasculopathy (PCV) in a Caucasian population treated with initial three-monthly aflibercept IVT, followed by a bimonthly regimen for...

Stereotactic radiotherapy for polypoidal choroidal vasculopathy

Polypoidal choroidal vasculopathy (PCV) is a variant of neovascular AMD. It is a disease of choroidal vasculature characterised by abnormal branching vascular network with aneurysmal dilatations (polyps). Features of PCV include pigment epithelial detachments (PED), subretinal fluid (SRF) accumulation and...

Choroidal thickness in ocular sarcoidosis by OCT measurement

This is the first study to evaluate the choroidal thickness in patients with ocular sarcoidosis during the quiescent phase using enhanced depth imaging optical coherence tomography (EDI-OCT) and comparing with normal subjects. Ocular sarcoidosis may affect the choroidal circulation (occlusive...
