Abstract

Purpose To determine the proportion of luminal and stromal areas of normal choroids in the optical coherence tomographic (OCT) images obtained by enhanced depth imaging (EDI)-OCT. Design A prospective, masked, observational cross-sectional study. Methods setting: This study was performed at the Kagoshima University Hospital, Japan. study population: One hundred and eighty right eyes of 180 healthy volunteers (106 women; mean age of 55.9 years) without ocular pathology. observational procedures: The EDI-OCT images of the posterior choroid 7500 μm from the optic disc in the horizontal plane were converted to binary images. The total cross-sectional choroidal area, luminal area, and stromal area of the choroid were measured. main outcome measures: Correlations between clinical factors and each choroidal structure and ratio of luminal/stromal areas were determined. The correlations of each choroidal structure and the age, sex, axial length (AL), and refractive errors were calculated. Results The mean total cross-sectional choroidal area was 1.84 mm2 (luminal area 1.21 mm2 and stromal area 0.63 mm2). Multivariate analysis (standardized partial regression coefficient) showed that age (-0.723, P <.001) was significantly correlated with the reduced area of the choroid, and the correlation was greater than that for the AL (-0.408, P <.001). The ratio of luminal/stromal area was significantly reduced in eyes with longer ALs (-0.531, P <.001), and the strength of the correlation was greater than that of age (-0.389, P <.001). Conclusions Although both the luminal and the stromal areas decrease with increasing age and with longer ALs, the degree of decrease and areas affected were not the same.
