    Dear Editor We thank Drs Uzun and Pehlivan for their interest in our article,1 and we welcome this opportunity to address their concerns. As pointed out, there are several factors that may induce fluctuation of choroidal thickness such as the diurnal effect, systemic diseases (endocrine, cardiovascular, rheumatologic, and inflammatory), intraocular pressure, refractive status, systemic blood pressure, body mass index, a...

    Dear Editor, We have read and reviewed the article entitled as "Choroidal structure in eyes with drusen and reticular pseudodrusen determined by binarisation of optical coherence tomographic images" by Corvi et al. with great interest [1]. The authors compared luminal and stromal areas of the choroid in eyes with drusen and reticular pseudodrusen (RPD), and investigated their changes over 24 months using optical coherenc...
