We read with interest the recent article by Flores-Moreno et al 1 entitled ‘The relationship between retinal and choroidal thickness and visual acuity in highly myopic eyes’. In their study, best-corrected visual acuity (BCVA) in highly myopic eyes without myopic maculopathy or any other retinal disorder was correlated with subfoveal choroidal thickness and photoreceptor layer thickness. However, BCVA was not well correlated with foveal thickness or outer nuclear layer thickness, including photoreceptor cell layer. When considering that photoreceptor layer thickness could be assumed to be correlated with photoreceptor cell layer thickness, and that photoreceptor layer …
