  • Abstract
  • Look Inside

We performed membrane peeling in 5 eyes with epimacular proliferation which developed after pars plana vitrectomy for proliferative vitreoretinopathy. The epimacular membranecould be removed in all the eyes, resulting in improvement in vision by 2 steps more. Epimacular proliferation is one of the factors for poor visual outcome after surgery for proliferative vitreor-etinopathy. We advocate surgical peeling of the membrane whenever feasible.
