Outcomes and Predictive Factors in Bilateral Macular Holes – Corrected Proof

Purpose: To evaluate the incidence, risk factors, outcomes, and visual prognosis in patients with bilateral macular holes repaired surgically with indocyanine green (ICG)—assisted internal limiting membrane (ILM) peeling in our population.Design: Retrospective, multisurgeon, nonrandomized, noncomparative case series.Participants: Eighty-two patients were identified who underwent bilateral macular hole surgery with ILM peeling without other vision-limiting pathologic features.Methods: All patients underwent bilateral macular hole surgery at a single-site, multisurgeon center with preoperative and postoperative optical coherence tomography (OCT) characterization and ICG-assisted ILM peeling during surgery with intraocular gas tamponade.Main Outcome Measures: Comparison of the closure and reopening rate, prognosis, change in visual acuity, (Read more...)
