PURPOSE To determine whether a recovery of the microstructures of the foveal photoreceptors after macular hole closure is correlated with best-corrected visual acuity (BCVA). DESIGN Retrospective, consecutive, observational case series. METHODS SETTING Single-center academic practice. STUDY POPULATION Forty-one eyes of 41 patients with surgically closed macular holes. OBSERVATIONAL PROCEDURES: The presence and intactness of the cone outer segment tips (COST) line were determined by… CONTINUE READING
