The significance of the external limiting membrane in the recovery of photoreceptor layer after successful macular hole closure: a study by spectral domain optical coherence tomography.

PURPOSE To evaluate the external limiting membrane (ELM) by spectral domain optical coherence tomography (SDOCT) and its correlation with the inner segment/outer segment (IS/OS) line in patients with successful macular hole surgery. PROCEDURES Forty-five eyes were divided into 3 groups according to the interval between surgery and first examination. In… CONTINUE READING
