Photoreceptor Outer Segment Length: A Prognostic Factor for Idiopathic Epiretinal Membrane Surgery

Purpose: To investigate prognostic factors for visual improvement in patients undergoing vitrectomy for epiretinal membrane (ERM) using spectral domain (SD) optical coherence tomography (OCT). Design: Prospective cohort study. Participants: A total of 41 eyes of 38 patients. Methods: A total of 41 eyes of 38 patients with idiopathic ERM underwent ERM resection. Ophthalmic evaluations included best-corrected visual acuity (BCVA) and OCT parameters before and 1, 3, and 6 months after surgery. Correlations between OCT parameters and BCVA were assessed at each time point. Correlations between postoperative BCVA and preoperative factors (Read more...)
