  • Abstract
  • Look Inside

We reviewed 19 eyes of idiopathic epiretinal membrane treated by vitreous surgery. Additional peeling of inner limiting membrane (ILM) was performed in 9 eyes and not in 10 eyes. There was no significant difference between the two groups regarding age, visual acuity, foveal thickness, amplitude and implicit time by multifocal electroretinogram (MERG) prior to surgery. At 3 months after surgery, there was no difference between the two groups regarding visual acuity, foveal thickness, and implicit time of MERG. Amplitude of MERG was significantly lower in 9 eyes receiving ILM peeling than in other 10 eyes. The findings show that ILM peeling may not benefit in surgery for epiretinal membrane. A longer observation is necessary for definitive evaluation.
