Abstract

PURPOSE: To explore the associations between diffuse chorioretinal atrophy (DCA) and age, sex, axial length, spherical equivalent, and best-corrected visual acuity (BCVA) among highly myopic eyes. METHODS: This study included right eyes of 857 bilaterally highly myopic individuals from the ZOC-BHVI Cohort Study. Participants underwent examinations, including BCVA, ocular biometry, autorefraction, and color fundus photography. An Early Treatment Diabetic Retinopathy Study grid was applied on the fundus photographs to evaluate the location of DCA, which was graded into four categories (D0-D3). The characteristics and ocular biometry were compared between participants' eyes with and without DCA..
