We have recently reported that the retinal stretch due to myopia is closely related to the peripapillary retinal arteries angle (PRAA) (Yamashita et al., Invest Ophthalmol Vis Sci 2013;54:5481–5488). The purpose of the current study was to investigate the relationship between retinal artery position and Ocular Response Analyzer (ORA) waveform parameters.
In 43 eyes of 41 healthy subjects, ORA measurements were carried out and the PRAA was calculated from fundus photographs. Then, the variables related to PRAA were identified from 40 variables of age, axial length (AL), keratometry, ORA corneal hysteresis (CH), ORA corneal resistant factor (CRF), and 35 ORA waveform parameters, using the Lasso regression and model selection with the second-order bias-corrected Akaike information criterion index.
The optimal model for PRAA included AL, CRF, and three ORA waveform parameters (aindex, w2, and slew1). This optimal model was significantly better than the model with AL-only, the model only with AL and CH, and the model only with AL and CRF (P < 0.0001, P < 0.0001, P < 0.0001, respectively; analysis of variance).
The PRAA was significantly better represented by using AL and ORA parameters including waveform parameters, compared with AL alone, with AL and CH alone, and with AL and CRF alone.
ORA waveform, which represents corneal biomechanical properties, was associated with myopic retinal stretch.
