The purpose of this study is to compare functional and anatomical results of a combined surgery and two time surgery for macular hole and cataract extraction in one hundred and twenty patients (120 eyes) with idiopathic Macular Hole (MH) and cataract in two academic centers.
Main outcome measures were the assessment of visual acuity at 6 and 12 months,and the rate of closure of MH by OCT (optical coherence tomography).

Funds autofluorescence (FAF) indicates hyper fluorescence at the macular hole in the patients with macular hole. Investigators investigate the association between FAF and visual acuity, re...
The efficacy of macular hole (MH) surgery with the halting of prone positioning by monitoring the MH closure in the swept source optical coherence tomographic (SS-OCT) images was compared ...
Macular hole surgery were tried by different surgeons using many techniques with different successes but still there were many recurrences. In this study the investigators try to close the...
A macular hole is a fairly common problem in the retina and is an important cause of loss of central vision. The aim of this study is to determine whether, in patients with a stage 2 or 3 ...
To evaluate the correlations between anatomical and functional changes studied with microperimetry (MPM) and spectral-domain OCT (SD-OCT) in patients after successful repair of idiopathic ...
To present a case of macular hole associated with macular telangiectasia Type 2 (Mac-Tel 2) which underwent spontaneous closure.
Macular hole associated with high myopia (MH-HM) and macular hole-associated retinal detachment (MH-RD) are two conditions found in eyes with pathologic myopia that often have poor postoperative outco...
To identify prognostic factors influencing the success of idiopathic macular hole surgery, including initial visual acuity, hole size and stage, and type of gas used for tamponade.
To investigate changes in the pattern of metamorphopsia in patients after idiopathic macular hole (MH) surgery and the relationship between metamorphopsia, visual acuity (VA), and macular parameters.
To present a clinical case of lamellar macular hole with lamellar hole-associated epiretinal proliferation in a pediatric familial exudative vitreoretinopathy patient. Retinal findings are described, ...
A form of MACULAR DEGENERATION also known as dry macular degeneration marked by occurrence of a well-defined progressive lesion or atrophy in the central part of the RETINA called the MACULA LUTEA. It is distinguishable from WET MACULAR DEGENERATION in that the latter involves neovascular exudates.
Fluid accumulation in the outer layer of the MACULA LUTEA that results from intraocular or systemic insults. It may develop in a diffuse pattern where the macula appears thickened or it may acquire the characteristic petaloid appearance referred to as cystoid macular edema. Although macular edema may be associated with various underlying conditions, it is most commonly seen following intraocular surgery, venous occlusive disease, DIABETIC RETINOPATHY, and posterior segment inflammatory disease.

Specialized ophthalmic technique used in the surgical repair and or treatment of disorders that include retinal tears or detachment; MACULAR HOLES; hereditary retinal disease; AIDS-related retinal infections; ocular tumors; MACULAR DEGENERATION; DIABETIC RETINOPATHY; and UVEITIS.
The large hole at the base of the skull through which the SPINAL CORD passes.
An opening or hole in the ESOPHAGUS that is caused by TRAUMA, injury, or pathological process.
Surgery is a technology consisting of a physical intervention on tissues. All forms of surgery are considered invasive procedures; so-called "noninvasive surgery" usually refers to an excision that does not penetrate the structure being exci...
