Forty-one patients with a unilateral, macular epiretinal membrane (ERM) underwent pars plana vitrectomy and membrane peeling to improve the visual acuity. The authors retrospectively reviewed the histopathology of the vitrectomy specimen in each instance to determine whether the presence of internal-limiting membrane (ILM) had an adverse effect on visual acuity. Eleven specimens contained long segment of ILM, as determined by light microscopy. With a minimum of 6 months of follow-up, none of… CONTINUE READING
