Values are presented as mean ± standard deviation or number (%).

EIFL = ectopic inner foveal layer; Y:N = yes:no; BCVA = best corrected visual acuity; logMAR = logarithm of minimal angle of resolution; CFT = central foveal thickness; IS/OS = photoreceptor inner segment/outer segment; ELM = external limiting membrane.
