Subjective estimation of ILM peeling surface without dye improves with experience

Junior and senior surgeons’ ability to subjectively estimate the internal limiting membrane peeling surface without the use of dye was fair; however, surface areas were larger for more-experienced surgeons, researchers found.In a prospective study, 30 eyes of 30 patients underwent epiretinal membrane surgery; half of the patients had surgery performed by a senior surgeon, and the other half had surgery performed by two junior surgeons. All patients underwent an eye examination, which included measurement for best corrected visual acuity, slit-lamp examination and a dilated fundus ophthalmoscopy.
