SD-OCT detects signs of silicone oil emulsification

Optical coherence tomography detected small hyper-reflective areas in eyes that underwent silicone oil tamponade for various indications, according to a study. The retrospective study included 11 eyes of 11 patients. Vitrectomy and silicone oil tamponade had been performed secondary to rhegmatogenous retinal detachment in nine patients, panuveitis with retinal necrosis in one patient, and recurrent full-thickness macular hole in one patient. Investigators used SD-OCT to observe eyes after surgery.
