Assessment of Retinal Function Before and After Idiopathic Macular Hole Surgery – Corrected Proof

Purpose: To evaluate preoperative and postoperative retinal function in patients who underwent macular surgery for idiopathic macular hole.Design: Prospective, comparative, interventional case series.Methods: Thirty eyes of 30 patients with idiopathic macular hole were included in the study. Patients underwent pars plana vitrectomy and peeling of the internal limiting membrane (ILM). ILM visualization was improved in 15 patients by using triamcinolone acetonide and in the remaining 15 patients by using infracyanine green dye. Spectral-domain optical coherence tomography examination was performed to document macular hole closure. Retinal function was assessed preoperatively and postoperatively over a period of 12 months by best-corrected visual acuity (Read more...)
