Abstract
We examined the impact of axial length on superficial retinal vessel density (SRVD) and foveal avascular zone area (FAZA) measurement using optical coherence tomography angiography. The SRVD and FAZA were quantified before and after correction for magnification error associated with axial length variation. Although SRVD did not differ before and after correction for magnification error in the parafoveal region, change in foveal SRVD and FAZA were significant. This has implications for clinical trials outcome in diseased eyes where significant capillary dropout may occur in the parafovea.
