Abstract. Purpose:To report the short-term outcome and safety of day surgery for idiopathic epiretinal membrane. Cases and Method:This study was made on 30 eyes of 30 cases who received day surgery for epiretinal membrane during the past 15 months. The series comprised 7 males and 23 females. The age ranged from 54 to 78 years, average 67 years. These 30 eyes were part of 59 consecutive cases that received vitreous surgery for epiretinal membrane during the same period. Surgery was performed using a 25-gauge system with adjunct use of floating lens or wide-angle viewing system. Results:There was no intraoperative complication throughout. Transient ocular hypotension or hypertension developed after surgery in 3 cases. Use of wide-angle viewing system facilitated detection of retinal break during surgery. Conclusion:Day surgery was safe and effective for epiretinal membrane.
