Abstract Purpose: To report changes in abnormal paravascular findings following surgery for idiopathic epiretinal membrane.

Cases and Method: This retrospective study was made on 9 eyes of 9 cases who received surgery for idiopathic epiretinal membrane. The series comprised 4 males and 5 females. The age averaged 71.2±6.3 years. All the eyes were evaluated by blue monochromatic photography and optical coherence tomography(OCT)before and after surgery.

Results: Before surgery, 7 eyes showed holes in the inner retinal layer along major vessels. Paravascular cysts were present in 4 eyes. After surgery, holes in the inner retinal layer disappeared in 6 eyes and became shallow in one eye. Paravascular cysts disappeared in 3 out of 4 eyes.

Conclusion: Many eyes with idiopathic epiretinal membrane showed holes in the inner retinal layer and paravascular cysts. The holes and cysts disappeared or became less distinct after surgery in the majority of cases. The holes and cysts seemed to be due to tangential traction to the retina by the epiretinal membrane.
