PURPOSE To determine the changes of regional macular thickness after successful macular hole surgery (MHS) with internal limiting membrane (ILM) peeling during a 24-month follow-up period. METHODS In a prospective, interventional case study, the authors evaluated 24 eyes of 24 patients who underwent 23-gauge transconjunctival pars plana vitrectomy with(More)
PURPOSE To determine the retinal thickness (RT), after vitrectomy with internal limiting membrane (ILM) peeling, for an idiopathic macular hole (MH) or an epiretinal membrane (ERM). Also, to investigate the effect of a dissociated optic nerve fiber layer (DONFL) appearance on RT. METHODS A non-randomized, retrospective chart review was performed for 159(More)
PURPOSE To report a patient whose foveal avascular zone (FAZ) decreased after vitrectomy with internal limiting membrane (ILM) peeling. METHODS A 58-year-old woman underwent successful phacovitrectomy with ILM peeling for a thin epiretinal membrane in an eye with a normal foveal contour. Optical coherence tomography angiographic en face images of the 3(More)
OBJECTIVE To investigate the effects of vitreomacular adhesion (VMA), vitreomacular separation (VMS) and absence of vitreous gel due to vitrectomy on macular thickness measured in the spectral domain optical coherence tomographic (SD-OCT) images. DESIGN A longitudinal, retrospective, observational study. SETTING Secondary multicentre study. (More)
PURPOSE To determine the long-term changes in the regional macular thickness after idiopathic epiretinal membrane (ERM) excision and to determine whether there were correlations between the pre- and postoperative central macular thickness and the best-corrected visual acuity (BCVA). METHODS This was a prospective, interventional case series study of 53(More)
PURPOSE To show a case in which the shape of the fovea changed after an asymptomatic macular posterior vitreous detachment (PVD). METHODS The foveal shape was determined from the spectral-domain optical coherence tomography (OCT) images before and after a spontaneous macular PVD. RESULTS A 66-year-old man with a unilateral macular hole in the right eye(More)
