Abstract
Purpose: To describe the clinical features and outcomes of punctate inner choroidopathy (PIC) in Korean patientsMethods: We retrospectively reviewed the medical records of patients with PIC between 2004 and 2015. The main outcome measures included best-corrected visual acuity (BCVA), presence of choroidal neovascularization (CNV), and optical coherence tomography findings. Patients with and without CNV were compared.Results: Forty eyes of 26 patients were included. The final BCVA was better than 20/40 in 33 eyes (82.5%). CNV was initially present in 12 eyes (30.0%). The mean initial and final logMAR BCVA was poorer for eyes with CNV than for eyes without CNV. Eyes with CNV exhibited a larger myopic refractive error, inflammatory lesions confined within the posterior pole, and a decreased final subfoveal choroidal thickness compared with eyes without CNV.Conclusion: PIC in the Korean population generally exhibits favorable visual outcomes, and eyes with CNV show more abnormalities and poorer outcomes.
