Abstract

PURPOSE:

We demonstrate foveal hypoplasia by optical coherence tomography (OCT).

DESIGN:

Observational case report.

METHODS:

Foveal hypoplasia was demonstrated in a 79-year-old man with decreased vision since childhood using fundus photography, fluorescein angiography, and OCT scans through four meridians of the central foveal.

RESULTS:

The OCT showed extension of all neurosensory retinal layers through the area in which the fovea would normally be located.

CONCLUSION:

Optical coherence tomography can be used to demonstrate foveal hypoplasia.
