  • Abstract
  • Look Inside

We performed vitreous surgery on 258 eyes. The series comprised idiopathic epiretinal membrane 123 eyes, macular hole 76 eyes and exdative age-related macular degeneration 59 eyes. The visual acuity improved in 59% of epiretinal membrane, 78% of macular hole and 69% of macular degeneration. Visual acuity of 0.5 or more was obtained in 70% of epiretinal membrane, 45% of macular hole and 22% of macular degeneration. The visual acuity improved significantly after surgery in all the 3 groups. Multiple regression analysis showed the postoperative visual acuity to be most closely correlated with the postoperative one. Above findings show the usefulness of surgery for the three diseases. In order to achieve maintenance or improvement in visual acuity, the preoperative visual acuity will to be better than 0.9 in epiretinal membrane, 0.6 in macular hole and 0.3 for macular degeneration.
