Comparison of Clinical Characteristics in Myopic Traction Maculopathy with and Without MH

So Hyun Bae_SCIENTIFIC POSTER 2015 Purpose: To compare the clinical characteristics of myopic traction maculopathy (MTM) with and without macular hole (MH). Methods: This retrospective study included the patients with MTM who underwent vitrectomy. The eyes were subdivided into 2 groups based on the presence of MH. Clinical features were assessed including age, sex, axial length, visual acuity, posterior staphyloma, chorioretinal atrophy and...

Angiographic Features in Drug-induced Bilateral Angle Closure and Transient Myopia with Ciliochoroidal Effusion

Jae Pil Shin_SCIENTIFIC POSTER 2015_1 Purpose: To report angiographic findings of acute drug-induced angle closure and transient myopia with ciliochoroidal effusion. Methods: Slit lamp examination, intraocular pressure (IOP) measurement, ultrasound biomicroscopy (UBM), fluorescein angiography (FAG) and Indocyanine green angiography (ICGA) were performed in 4 patients who had acute drug-induced angle closure with ciliochoroidal...

Peripapillary Intrachoroidal Cavitation in Myopic Patient

Myopic patients more than -6 diopters may suffer from this newly recognized pathology previously termed peripapillary detachment in pathologic myopia. It affects 5 % of highly myopic eyes. Usually a yellowish round lesion can be observed inferiorly to the optic nerve during fundus examination. We described that complex forces like posterior expansion force, vitreous traction force, and vitreous fluid dynamics determine the size and shape of...

Choroidal Thickness in Highly Myopic Eyes

SCIENTIFIC POSTER_Mafalda Mota Purpose: Myopia (nearsightedness) is a prevalent disease. In the myopic eye the light rays focus anteriorly to the retina. High or pathologic myopia is defined as spherical equivalent refractive error greater than 6.00 diopters (D) or axial length greater than 26.5mm3. Patients with high myopia are at a greater risk of developing progressive retinal degeneration and other vision threatening pathology, such as...

Spontaneous Closure of a Myopic MH in a Vitrectomized Eye

We report on a 50 years-old female patient who underwent pars plana vitrectomy for a dropped nucleus and developed thereafter a myopic macular hole. The hole closed spontaneously during follow up. The patient had been referred to our clinic for a dropped nucleus on both eyes, and she underwent subsequent pars plana vitrectomy. We did not implant an intraocular lens because of the high myopic refraction. After surgery her visual acuity was...

Refractive Errors in High Myopic Eyes After Phacovitrectomy

SCIENTIFIC POSTER_Ji Wook Yang Purpose: To examine the postoperative refractive error in highly myopic eyes after phacovitrectomy. Setting: University clinic, Suwon, Kyounggi-do, South Korea. Methods: This retrospective study includes 101 eyes (21 high myopic, 80 non-high myopic eyes) of 101 patients who underwent successful phacovitrectomy (phacoemulsification, intraocular lens implantation and pars plana vitrectomy). The highly myopic...
