Abstract Purpose:To report the rate of recurrence after surgical removal of idiopathic epiretinal membrane with or without simultaneous cataract surgery.

Cases and Method:This study was made on 93 eyes of 93 cases who received surgical removal of idiopathic epiretinal membrane during 4 years through 2017. The inner retinal membrane(ILM)was also removed in 59 eyes and was left intact in 34 eyes. Simultaneous cataract surgery was performed in 74 eyes and not in 19 eyes. Cases were followed up for one year or longer to evaluate the possible recurrence of epiretinal embrane.

Results:There was no significant difference in the rate of recurrence between eyes with and without simultaneous cataract surgery. There was no difference in visual acuity between eyes that received ILM removal or not. There was no difference in visual acuity with or without simultaneous cataract surgery.

Conclusion:There was no difference in rate of recurrence after surgery for epiretinal membrane with or without simultaneous cataract surgery. Rate of recurrence may differ depending on whether ILM is removed or not.
