  • Abstract
  • Look Inside

We performed indocyanine green (ICG) fundus angiography in 15 eyes of 8 cases with high myopia of -6 diopters or more. We used fundus camera 50 IA by Topcon. We observed disappearance of chor-oidal vessels in areas of choroidal patchy atrophyand of chorioretinal degenerations. In areas of patchy atrophy, there were occasionally remnants of choroidal vessels located deeper in the choroid than shown by conventional fluorescein angiogra-phy. There was an eye of high intensity of fluores-cence persistent throughout the late venous phase without manifest dye leakage. This finding was suggestive of occult choroidal neovascularization. ICG angiography thus supplied more accurate infor-mations concerning the disturbed state of circula-tion in high myopia.
