  • Look Inside

We performed grid photocoagulation for macular edema in 15 eyes with branch retinal vein occlu-sion. The eyes were followed up to 6 months using an optical coherence tomography (OCT). The thickness of the macula started to decrease soon after treatment. At 3 months after treatment, there was a signficant and positive correlation between the macular thickness and logMAR visual acuity (p=0.62). Outcome of visual acuity was generally poorer in 4 eyes with exudative retinal detachment than in 10 eyes without.
