Abstract. We performed vitreous surgery with posterior vitreous detachment in 16 eyes of diabetic macular edema. The outcome was compared with the preoperative findings of macular edema as seen by optical coherence tomography(OCT). We used the classification by Kishi et al(1999). The preoperative macular edema was classified as cystoid macular edema(CME)with sponge-like swelling 9 eyes,sponge-like swelling 3 eyes,and serous retinal detachment with sponge-like swelling 4 eyes. The preoperative visual acuity averaged 0.15,0.25 and 0.35 respectively. The preoperative visual acuity averaged 0.15,0.46 and 1.02 respectively. The findings show that improvement in visual acuity was more pronounced in eyes of serous retinal detachment with sponge-like swelling. Vitreous surgery with posterior vitreous detachment seems to be indicated for this type of diabetic macular edema.
