Optical coherence tomography (OCT) has improved the understanding and management of idiopathic macular hole. Images of precursor lesions and their progression demonstrate that antero-posterior as well as tangential traction are involved in macular hole formation. The staging of macular holes with biomicroscopic examination can be paralleled by optical coherence tomography staging with some modification. OCT is useful in differentiating simulating lesions and in allowing better counseling of… CONTINUE READING
