Autofluorescence helps gauge retinal displacement before, after vitrectomy for ERM

Fundus autofluorescence proved useful in showing retinal movement before and after vitrectomy for idiopathic epiretinal membrane, according to a study.Investigators prospectively studied 56 eyes of 53 patients who had idiopathic epiretinal membrane (ERM) and underwent vitrectomy with ERM removal and internal limiting membrane peeling. They used fundus autofluorescence to examine retinal movement in the posterior fundus before and after surgery.
