Anatomic Features and Function of the Macula and Outcome of Surgical Tenotomy and Reattachment in Achiasma – Corrected Proof

Objective: To examine the anatomic features and function of the macula in achiasma and to compare visual acuity, eye movements, foveation, and eye velocity before and after tenotomy and reattachment (T&R) surgery. Design: Case series. Participants: Two children with isolated achiasma. Methods: Ophthalmologic examinations, brain magnetic resonance imaging, full-field and multifocal electroretinography (ERG), visual evoked potentials (VEPs), spectral-domain optical coherence tomography (OCT), eye-movement recordings, and unilateral T&R in 1 patient. Main Outcome Measures: Visual acuity before and after surgery, macular anatomic features and function, and eye velocity before and after T&R surgery in 1 patient. Results: Magnetic resonance imaging and (Read more...)
