  •   Objective  To determine the choroidal thickness in the eyes with idiopathic macular hole (IMH) and the unaffected fellow eyes.  Methods  Twenty IMH patients and 20 ageand sex-matched healthy controls were recruited. Enhanced depth images were obtained using spectal-domain optical coherence tomography. The choroidal thickness was measured in the subfoveal area and 1 mm and 2 mm away from the fovea in the nasal, temporal, superior and inferior regions.  Results  The mean subfoveal area choroidal thickness was (161.53±50.50) μm in the eyes with IMH, (204.95±59.58) μm in the fellow eyes, and (248.00±63.40) μm in the control group (P=0.000). The choroidal thickness at all measured regions showed significant differences among three groups (P < 0.05). Compared with the control group, the choroidal thickness was significantly thinner in eyes with IMH (P < 0.01) and unaffected fellow eyes except for the superior choroidal thickness at 2 mm and inferior choroidal thickness at 2 mm (P < 0.05).  Conclusion  Choroidal thickness decreases in eyes with IMH and may also reduce in the unaffected fellow eyes, suggesting that the development of IMH may be associated with the choroid perfusion.
