PURPOSE To observe vitreous changes in high myopia using swept-source optical coherence tomography (SS-OCT). METHODS We performed slit-lamp biomicroscopy and SS-OCT in the highly myopic right eyes of 151 patients (mean age, 52.7 years; mean refraction, -11.4 diopters [D]) and the right eyes with no myopia of 363 healthy control volunteers (mean age, 52.8(More)

A 55-year-old man slipped and fell down hitting his eye on an extended windshield wiper blade. Although he had(More)
Purpose: This study describes the relationship between the vitreous and diabetic macular edema (DME) using swept source OCT (SS-OCT). Method: We examined 81 eyes of 58 consecutive patients diagnosed as DME. The condition of the posterior wall of the posterior precortical vitreous pocket (PPVP) was classified into 4 groups based on 12-mm horizontal and(More)
