Abstract. Purpose:To report optical coherence tomography(OCT)findings of submacular hemorrhage in pathological myopia. Cases and Method:This retrospective study was made on 8 eyes of 8 patients. The series comprised 5 males and 3 females. The age ranged from 31 to 64 years,average 44 years. All the eyes had either myopia greater than -8 diopters or axial length greater than 26.5 mm. All the eyes had submacular hemorrhage without choroidal neovascularization. Visual acuity was evaluated in terms of logMAR. Results:After 6 months,averaged visual acuity improved significantly from 0.18 to -0.02(p<0.01). Averaged foveal thickness changed from 243μm to 220μm 6 months later. The difference was not significant. Submacular hemorrhage disappeared in all the eyes. Five eyes showed formation or progression of lacquer crack lesion. Junction line of inner and outer photoreceptor segments was detected in 7 eyes by OCT. These 7 eyes had final decimal visual acuity of 0.9 or over. Conclusion:Junction line of inner and outer segments may serve as an indicator for visual prognosis in submacular hemorrhage in pathological myopia.
