HIGH MYOPIA AND DIABETIC RETINOPATHY A Contralateral Eye Study in Diabetic Patients With High Myopic Anisometropia
چکیده
Purpose:To examine an association between high myopia and diabetic retinopathy (DR) in diabetic patients with high myopic anisometropia. Methods:A total of 116 white diabetic patients (232 eyes) with high myopia (spherical equivalent.25.00 diopters, D) anisometropia (difference$26 D) were enrolled in this cross-sectional, contralateral eye study. The frequency of DR was compared between the high myopic and the contralateral eyes. Results:Compared with the fellow eyes, DR was significantly less frequent in high myopic side (27.6% vs. 100%,P,0.001; relative risk, 0.28 with 95% confidence interval of 0.21–0.37). Similar significant trends were found for the incidence of nonproliferative (27.6% vs. 69%, P,0.001) and proliferative DR (0% vs. 31%,P,0.001). Diabetic retinopathy was also less severe in the same group. Conclusion:Using a contralateral eye study design prevented the influence of potential confounding factors inherent in similar previous case–control studies. On this basis, a protective role for high myopia against DR was established.
