Adaptive Optics Imaging of Idiopathic Epiretinal Membranes

Idiopathic epiretinal membrane (ERM) is the most common vitreomacular interface pathology in adult population. Prevalence of idiopathic ERM has been estimated to be >10% among those >70 years; its development is usually preceded by posterior vitreous detachment. It is composed of nonvascularized tissue growth along the retinal inner limiting membrane, and many different cellular (hyalocytes, glial cells, fibroblasts) and extracellular components (collagen, fibronectin, neurites) have been identified in immunocytochemical studies.
