PURPOSE. To investigate the biometric characteristics of eyes with idiopathic central serous chorioretinopathy (CSC). METHODS. Medical records of 52 consecutive patients with unilateral CSC were reviewed. Central serous chorioretinopathy was diagnosed using spectral-domain optical coherence tomography (SD-OCT) and fluorescein angiography. Data collected for comparison with fellow eyes were refractive error, biometric measurements using partial coherence interferometry, and SD-OCT parameters. RESULTS. Mean time from subjective symptom onset to initial visit was 8.3 6 12.29 weeks. Mean axial length (AL) was shorter in CSC eyes than in fellow eyes by 0.24 6 0.379 mm (P < 0.001), and mean anterior chamber depth (ACD) was shallower in CSC eyes than in fellow eyes by 0.03 6 0.088 mm (P = 0.021). Central serous chorioretinopathy eyes also had thicker subfoveal choroidal thickness (CT) than fellow eyes by 34.0 6 45.93 lm (P < 0.001). Differences in spherical equivalents between CSC and fellow eyes correlated with AL differences (r = 0.690, P < 0.001) and CT differences (r = 0.473, P = 0.001). On multiple linear regression analysis, the differences in ACD between CSC and fellow eyes were significantly correlated with AL differences (P = 0.032) and symptom duration (P = 0.019). CONCLUSIONS. Biometric characteristics such as AL and ACD were different between eyes with CSC and fellow eyes. Variations in biometry, which correlated with CT differences, might be related to differences in refractive errors between eyes.
