Details and patient eligibility

About

Purpose: To investigate the relationship between retinal thickness (RT) and metabolic risks (MRs) in patients without retinal lesion. Methods: Fifty-two patients over 60 y/o were divided into four groups according to their MRs of hypertension, hyperlipidemia or hyperglyceremia. After complete ophthalmic examination, optical coherence tomography was performed to measure RT.

Inclusion criteria

We enrolled the patients included age more than 60 years old, no positive finding during dilated fundus examination.

Exclusion criteria

The exclusion criteria were as followed:

  • systemic disease that will affect visual acuity evaluation (for example: CVA), *opaque cornea and vitreous
  • glaucoma
  • uvietis and other clinically established ocular disease.
  • According to the LOCS III11, those who had nuclear opalescence, nuclear color more than grade 3 or any grade of cortical cataract and posterior subcapsular cataract were also eliminated.
