Abstract
Objectives: The objectives of this study are to measure the macular choroidal thickness in diabetics without diabetic retinopathy and to compare it with non-diabetics, and to correlate that with age and refractive error. Method: This is a retrospective, observational and case series study. EDI-OCT images were obtained in diabetics without apparent diabetic retinopathy with a spectral domain OCT. The sub-foveal choroidal thickness was measured from the outer boarder of the retinal pigment epithelium to the inner scleral boarder. Statistical analysis was performed to evaluate CT and to correlate it with age, refractive error in eyes without diabetic retinopathy. Results: We studied 65 eyes of 38 patients (30 eyes were of diabetic patients) aged between 26 and 79 years. There were 17 males and 21 females in which 30 eyes were of 21 diabetic patients and 35 eyes were of 19 non-diabetic patients. It was observed that, the mean CT had no significant difference between patients with diabetes mellitus and non- diabetic subjects (256±108 um vs. 265±105 um), p=0.51. Conclusion: Patients with diabetes mellitus had a slightly but statistically insignificant, thicker sub-foveal choroid than non-diabetic patients.
