PURPOSE To evaluate the efficacy of internal limiting membrane (ILM) or epiretinal membrane removal during pars plana vitrectomy for a retinal detachment resulting from a macular hole in myopic eyes. METHODS A retrospective study was conducted in a single institution. Twenty-six highly myopic eyes with a retinal detachment resulting from a macular hole were studied. During pars plana vitrectomy, ILM peeling (ILM-peeled group) was performed on 13 eyes, and the ILM was not removed (ILM… CONTINUE READING
