Investigators evaluated 155 subjects with a mean age of 53.5 years (range: 22 years to 89 years). Enhanced-depth imaging OCT was performed with the Cirrus (Carl Zeiss Meditec) and Spectralis (Heidelberg Engineering) systems to measure choroidal thickness from the outer limit of the retinal pigment epithelium to the inner surface of the sclera.
