  • Abstract
  • Look Inside

We performed vitreous surgery on 11 eyes in which the visual acuity was reduced to 0.1 or less due to central retinal vein occlusion with macular edema. Macular edema resolved in 7 eyes within 6 months of surgery. Visual acuity improved in 6 eyes. Visual acuity improved in 5 out of 7 eyes when surgery was performed within 6 months after onset. It improved in 1 out of 4 eyes when surgery was performed later. The difference was significant (p < 0.05). The findings show that early vitreous surgery may induce resolution of macular edema and improved visual acuity in eyes with markedly reduced visual acuity due to central retinal vein occlusion with macular edema.
