The Value of Combining Autofluorescence and Optical Coherence Tomography in Predicting the Visual Prognosis of Sealed Macular Holes – Corrected Proof

Purpose: To investigate the autofluorescence patterns of sealed macular holes and determine the correlations of the postoperative changes in spectral-domain optical coherence tomography and fundus autofluorescence (FAF) with the best-corrected visual acuity (BCVA) of patients with sealed idiopathic macular holes.Design: Retrospective consecutive observational case series.Methods: Seventy-seven eyes from 75 consecutive patients who had undergone successful vitrectomies for idiopathic macular holes by a single surgeon with postoperative follow-ups for over 1 year were included. FAF imaging studies were performed 1 month and 6 months post surgery, and optical coherence tomography (OCT) was performed at regular intervals after surgery. The main outcome measures were (Read more...)
