Abstract: The choriocapillaris plays a considerable role in the normal physiology of the eye as well as in various diseases. Assessing the changes in the choriocapillaris can therefore provide important information about normal ageing and pathogenesis of visual impairment, and even some systemic diseases. In vivo imaging of the choriocapillaris has evolved from non-depth resolved, dye-based angiography to advanced, high-resolution optical coherence tomography angiography (OCTA). However, the intricate microvascular netw… Show more

“…The choriocapillaris, in particular, has been found to consist of a tightly packed meshwork of capillaries surrounded by many intercapillary spaces that exhibit physiologic and pathologic changes with age, myopia, hypertension, and various other diseases. 16,17 In this context, it is important to realize that the overall size and thickness of the choroid is determined by changes in any of the above-mentioned structures, and not only those in its vascular component. For years, point choroidal thickness has been used as a marker of vascular change in the choroid in a variety of systemic and ocular disorders.…”
