BACKGROUND Optical coherence tomography can be used to assess retinal degeneration in multiple sclerosis (MS). Thinning of the retinal nerve fibre layer and macular thickness have been well characterized, but newer devices allow quantification of all retinal layers. OBJECTIVES The objective of this study was to evaluate the thickness of the paramacular(More)
PURPOSE To investigate the reliability of partial coherence laser interferometry for optical biometry in highly myopic eyes. METHODS Axial length measurements by the IOLMaster (Carl Zeiss Meditec, Germany) with signal-to-noise ratio (SNR) ≥2 were performed in 52 consecutive myopic subjects with axial length ≥26.5 mm and 45 emmetropic patients before(More)
