  • Look Inside

We evaluated the efficacy of vitrectomy for macular edema secondary to retinal vein occlusion in 7 eyes. The series comprised 4 eyes of branch and 3 eyes of central retinal vein occlusion. We paid particular attention to visual acuity, fluorescein angiographic findings and the retinal thickness before and after surgery. Visual acuity improved significantly in 6 eyes (p < 0.05) . The retinal thickness, as measured by a retinal thickness analyzer, averaged 370 ± 87 Lim before surgery and 284 ± 72 gm at one months after surgery. The difference was significant (p < 0.05) . The findings show the efficacy of vitrectomy for macular edema secondary retinal vein occlusion and the usefulness of retinal thickness analyzer in the evaluation before and after surgery.
