OBJECTIVES To determine the validity of the assumption that optical coherence tomographic scans of macular holes have a discrete linear signal (DLS) that represents a detached posterior vitreous face, and to analyze the DLS in macular hole pathogenesis. METHODS Optical coherence tomographic scans were taken of 3 situations in which the vitreous conditions were known: (1) dissected intact vitreous, (2) clinically evident Weiss rings, and (3) maculae before and after saccades in eyes without a… CONTINUE READING
