OCT images shown in Figure 2 (patient's images labeled as "case"), obtained with a Topcon 3D OCT-2000, confirmed the absence of the foveal pit
at the expected location of the anatomical fovea.

SD-OCT is increasingly in use in clinical studies to examine retinal structure-function relationships in children with ROP [19, 20] and has revealed several retinal findings such as subclinical cystoid macular edema, subretinal fluid, absence or narrowing of the foveal pit
, increased fovea thickness, and hypoplastic fovea [20-22].
A hyperreflective area was observed on the ELM at the foveal pit
. IS/OS junction defect was noted (Figure 7B).
