OBJECTIVE To investigate the morphologic alterations around the optic disc by optical coherence tomography (OCT) in eyes with high myopia. DESIGN Observational case series. PARTICIPANTS One hundred twenty-seven eyes (69 patients) with high (> or =-8.00 diopters [D]) myopia were included. In addition, 46 emmetropic (+1.00 to -1.00 D) eyes and 40 eyes with low (<-6.00 D) myopia were examined as controls. METHODS The participants had ophthalmologic examinations including stereoscopic fundus… CONTINUE READING
