The primary purpose of the work was to assess and enhance OCT-based retinal biomarkers used in human myopia research in the context of advancing OCT technologies. The individual studies provided insights into the repeatability of automated choroidal thickness measurements with spectral-domain and swept-source OCT. Moreover, the work assessed wide- eld topographical choroidal vascularity, retinal and foveal shape in relation to myopia. Finally, novel procedures of retinal shape measurements were compared to peripheral refraction as previously used method for this purpose.
