PURPOSE To investigate subfoveal and perifoveal choroidal thickness (CT) in patients with rheumatoid arthritis (RA). METHODS A study group of 117 patients with RA and a control group of 46 age-matched healthy individuals were enrolled in the study. Subfoveal and perifoveal CTs were measured using enhanced depth imaging optical coherence tomography (EDI-OCT). Perifoveal CT was measured 1,500 µm nasally and 1,500 µm temporally apart from the foveal center. Relationship between the disease… CONTINUE READING
