PURPOSE To determine the relationship between the postoperative visual acuity (VA) and the presence of a photoreceptor inner segment (IS) and outer segment (OS) junction (IS/OS) in optical coherence tomographic (OCT) images after macular hole (MH) surgery. METHODS Twenty-three eyes of 23 cases of idiopathic MH treated by vitrectomy were studied. The postoperative VA and OCT3 images of the fovea at 1, 3, and 6 months were examined. The relationship between the presence of the IS/OS junction… CONTINUE READING
