Epiretinal Membrane Surgery Outcomes in Highly Myopic Eyes Without Traction Maculopathy: Long-term Results of a Case-Control Study – Corrected Proof

Purpose: To evaluate the outcomes of epiretinal membrane (ERM) surgery in highly myopic eyes without traction maculopathy, and to compare them with those from non–highly myopic eyes.Design: Retrospective nested case-control study from a cohort of 509 consecutive patients (509 eyes) who underwent pars plana vitrectomy with ERM removal.Methods: Thirty-two highly myopic eyes (with a refractive error of more than −6.00 diopters [D]), which underwent surgery for isolated ERM, were included in the study. For each case studied, we selected from the same cohort 2 age-matched controls who had ERM surgery (n = 64 non–highly myopic eyes). The best-corrected visual acuity (BCVA), the central (Read more...)
