b) The changes shown may occur in association with lacquer cracks
One of the most common longitudinal progression patterns observed in a long-term study of myopia (mean follow-up time of 12.7 years) [10] was for tessellated fundus to develop lacquer cracks and diffuse atrophy.
Patients with history of hypertension or diabetes, confounding ocular disease, additional eye operations, including vitreoretinal or cataract surgery or refractive surgeries, and other myopic complications (including lacquer cracks, posterior staphyloma, choroidal atrophy, choroidal neovascularization, subretinal hemorrhage, macular traction, macular hole, retinal detachment, and retinoschisis) were excluded.
There were 67 Chinese subjects from Shanghai included for our study, both eyes of the patients were examined, and we excluded 19 eyes with the following conditions: 6 eyes cannot gain enough signal strength of 5 lines in the HD-Scan, 3 eyes had lacquer cracks, and 10 eyes had BCVA less than 20/20.
There may be a relationship between SH and myopic CNV because the formation of both lesions is related to lacquer cracks (LCs) [6-8].
Relationship between the Final BCVA and Lacquer Cracks. To investigate the relationship between the final BCVA and LCs, we divided 32 eyes with LCs into the following groups: group 1 (LC crossed the central fovea) and group 2 (no LC crossed the central fovea).

In some myopes, breaks in Bruch's membrane may be seen on fundoscopy as "lacquer cracks".
Look for lacquer cracks in a myopic patient; these can be very subtle (Figure 2).
Myopic maculopathy, such as diffuse and patchy chorioretinal atrophy, lacquer cracks, myopic choroidal neovascularization (CNV), myopic subretinal hemorrhage (mSH), and posterior staphyloma, has been reported to be a significant cause of visual impairment and legal blindness worldwide, especially in Asian countries [1-4].
However, simple bleeding associated with lacquer cracks is generally thought to display blocked fluorescence.
However, this study found that dye leakage within simple bleeding could also be caused by lacquer cracks on FA.
