89 Possible Causes for Foveal Thinning

  • Occult Macular Dystrophy

    TD-OCT showed foveal thinning in all patients, but revealed no other retinal layer abnormality.[] Loss of cone photoreceptor outer segments may be responsible for decreased visual acuity and foveal thinning in OMD.[] RESULTS: Seven patients showed reduced foveal thickness associated with thinning of the outer nuclear layer (ONL), and five of these patients also had reduced foveal cone[]

  • Adult-Onset Foveomacular Vitelliform Dystrophy

    The foveal thinning found by OCT in all cases probably explains the progressive visual loss and possible evolution toward a full-thickness macular hole.[] Optical coherence tomography shows yellowish deposits between the neurosensory retina and the RPE with foveal thinning. Color vision has been described as normal.[] Keywords: Adult-onset foveal vitelliform dystrophy, electrooculogram, inner segment-outer segment junction How to cite this article: Indu V P, Giridhar A.[]

  • Reticular Dystrophy of the Retinal Pigment Epithelium

    Optical coherence tomography demonstrates relative foveal thinning and few lacunae until subretinal neovascularization develops when the fovea thickens or develops subretinal[]

  • Retinal Pigmentary Dystrophy

    Optical coherence tomography demonstrates relative foveal thinning and few lacunae until subretinal neovascularization develops when the fovea thickens or develops subretinal[] OCT showed an abnormal foveal contour with macular thinning and photoreceptor loss in both eyes ( See Figure 2 ).[] Spectral-domain optical coherence tomography of the right and left eyes showing an abnormal foveal contour with retinal thinning and photoreceptor loss.[]

  • Chloroquine Retinopathy

    The SD-OCT showed obvious thinning in the outer retina, loss of ...[] Macular cube SD-OCT scans of each eye revealed noticeable parafoveal thinning (Figure 1). The foveal depression also appeared relatively shallow in these scans.[] Cornea: Whorl Deposits Fundus: Asymptomatic perifoveal granularity at the level of the RPE with loss of foveal reflex Bull’s Eye pattern of thinning of the foveal RPE Retinal[]

  • Foveal Retinoschisis

    Figure 3: Spectral domain optical coherence tomography (SD-OCT) revealed foveal thinning following systemic steroid therapy for 2 weeks.[] METHODS: Optical coherence tomography findings in familial foveal retinoschisis was evaluated.[] In 2016, his BCVA was 6/24 and 6/36 in right and left eye, respectively, while OCT depicted significant macular thinning, accompanied by irregularities of the foveal contour[]

  • Retinal Telangiectasia

    MacTel type 2 is also characterized by a loss of macular transparency, superficial white crystals, depletion of macular pigment, and progressive foveal thinning ( 7 ) .[] Severity 3: Moderate to marked foveal hyperautofluorescence with angiographic abnormalities and foveal atrophy documented on optical coherence tomography.[] Severity 4: Mixed patterns of fundus autofluorescence or marked thinning of the retina on OCT.[]

  • Oculocutaneous Albinism Type 4

    They showed foveal hypoplasia, including 3 patients with grade 1 foveal hypoplasia, 7 with grade 2, and 6 with grade 3. No patient had grade 4 foveal hypoplasia.[] Three-dimensional OCT-2000 imaging with a GCC thickness significance map revealed GCC thinning in the temporal region of the fovea of both eyes.[] Foveal hypoplasia is usual. A few patients have some foveal development. Retinal thinning in the foveal area may be demonstrated with optical coherence tomography.[]

  • Toxic Retinopathy

    Fig. 1 OCT of the right (top) and left eye (bottom) showing outer retina and retinal pigment epithelium changes and foveal thinning.[] A: Normal eye showing the foveal pit and thickening of photoreceptor layers in the central fovea (vertical bars are blood vessel shadows).[] SD-OCT shows typical thinning of the inner retinal layers with loss of the parafoveal photoreceptor ellipsoid zone and relative central foveal sparing ( F ).[]

  • Central Retinal Artery Occlusion

    In contrast, scans of the left eye with end-stage glaucoma demonstrated an intact foveal depression and limited retinal thinning.[] […] extensive inner retinal atrophy, and marked retinal thinning.[] Optical coherence tomography (OCT) of the macula of the chronic phase of central retinal artery occlusion of the right eye indicated loss of the normal foveal depression,[]
