Average values of angles I and II. Angle I, the proximity of the defect to the center of the fovea, was significantly smaller in the high myopia group (31.6 ± 11.9° (8.33-74.14)) compared with the low to moderate myopia group (40.8 ± 14.7° (0–77.7)) and emmetropia group (42.2 ± 14.2° (14–75.27)) (p = 0.001 and p < 0.001, respectively). Angle II, the sum of the angular width of the defects, was significantly larger in the high myopia group (66.6 ± 35.9° (12.98-175.64)) compared with the low to moderate myopia group (34.2 ± 18.4° (7.24-91.88)) and emmetropia group (30.4 ± 17.1° (8.37-86.50)) (p < 0.001). * p-value <0.01 on one-way ANOVA.
