“…There are more than a dozen studies on choroidal thickness changes in pregnancy using enhanced depth imaging OCT, which have provided inconsistent results. [27][28][29][30][31][32][33][34][35][36][37][38][39][40][41][42] Some studies have found thickening of the choroid in specific subfields during the second and third trimester of pregnancy, whereas other studies have observed no difference in choroidal thickness during pregnancy. The discrepancy in these studies could be due to variation in inclusion criteria, confounding factors (i.e.…”

“…Finally, the stage of pregnancy at which each study group was imaged would impact SFCT, as evidenced by studies showing an upward trend of choroidal thickness in the first and second, followed by a decline in the third trimester. [24][25][26] We also investigated the correlation between SFCT and alternative indicators of disease severity, including maximum blood pressure and earlier GAs of delivery. We hypothesized that there would be a linear relationship between these alternative measures of preeclampsia severity and presence of ophthalmic findings.…”

“…At different pregnant periods, changes in the CT have been found. Goktas et al [26] suggested that choroid could be thickened during the second trimester, and Dadaci et al [2] found that the CT was significantly decreased in healthy pregnant women during the third trimester compared to the first trimester. Second, except for those discussed above, there still exist variables that might differ among studies, such as the diopters of the eyes and the intraocular pressures.…”
