  Purpose

Purpose: To investigate the relationship between retinal thickness (RT) and metabolic risks (MRs) in patients without retinal lesion.

Methods: Fifty-two patients over 60 y/o were divided into four groups according to their MRs of hypertension, hyperlipidemia or hyperglyceremia. After complete ophthalmic examination, optical coherence tomography was performed to measure RT.

Study Population
Patients who were over 60 y/o were divided into four groups according to their MRs of hypertension, hyperlipidemia or hyperglyceremia.
Criteria

Inclusion Criteria:

  • We enrolled the patients included age more than 60 years old, no positive finding during dilated fundus examination.
