Abstract

PURPOSE: To characterize peripapillary intrachoroidal cavitation (PICC) in highly myopic participants and its associated risk factors. METHODS: This observational, cross-sectional study recruited 890 Chinese participants with bilateral high myopia, defined as ≤-6.00 diopters spherical power. Fundus photography and spectral-domain optical coherence tomography were used to determine the presence of PICC, defined as a yellow-orange lesion adjacent to the disc border with a corresponding intrachoroidal hyporeflective space. RESULTS: Among 890 participants, 884 right eyes were included for analysis. The rate of PICC was 3.6% (32 eyes). Peripapillary intrachoroidal cavitation was observed in two e..
