Abstract

BACKGROUND AND OBJECTIVE: This study is designed to illustrate various clinical findings associated with fovea plana in normal children. PATIENTS AND METHODS: A retrospective chart review of pediatric subjects with a diagnosis of fovea plana was conducted to evaluate the characteristics associated with this condition. RESULTS: All eyes had 20/40 or better best-corrected visual acuity (BCVA). In five of six subjects (83%), there was bilateral fovea plana. Astigmatism equal or greater than +1.5 diopters was present in 45% of eyes. On spectral-domain optical coherence tomography (SD-OCT), a foveal depression was absent in 82% of eyes and the inner nuclear layer was present in the center of the fovea in all eyes analyzed. CONCLUSION: Fovea plana is typically a bilateral disease and occurs in patients with generally good BCVA despite abnormal SD-OCT findings. However, unilateral disease may also be present. Astigmatism may be more prevalent in patients with fovea plana than initially suspected.
