Abstract Details


To study the choroidal thickness with an enhanced depth imaging spectral-domain optical coherence tomography (EDI-OCT) in clinically significant pseudophakic cystoid macular edema (CME).


Ophthalomology Clinic Boni Fratres Lodziensis, Lodz, Poland


28 patients with CME after uneventful cataract surgery were included. Choroidal thickness was analyzed and measured at various points: subfoveal and 1,5 mm nasal, 1,5 mm temporal, 1,5 mm inferior, 1,5 mm superior from the center of the fovea. We compare choroidal thickness between affected and fellow eyes.


The mean subfoveal choroidal thickness measured in 28 eyes with CME was 229.14 ± 62.61 µm and 280.82 ± 79.09 µm in fellow eyes. At any point (subfoveal, 1500 µm nasal, 1500 µm temporal, 1500 µm inferior, 1500 µm superior from the center of the fovea), the choroidal thickness of the affected eye was significantly (P < 0.01) thinner than that of the fellow eye.


The thinner choroid in eyes with CME than in fellow eyes may suggest that the reduced choroidal blood flow in the choriocapillaries is also possible factor of CME.
