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 ...
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 ...
The macular hole formation takes place in the centre of the retina. A closure of the macular hole is believed to take place if the central retinal area is kept dry in the postoperative per...
To investigate the surgical results and morphologic characteristics of macular hole (MH) and macular hole retinal detachment (MHRD) associated with extreme myopia.
To present a new technique, macular hole hydrodissection, that increases the likelihood of closure for challenging macular holes (MHs) with multiple risk factors.
To determine whether the macula is displaced after vitrectomy with internal limiting membrane (ILM) peeling in eyes with an idiopathic macular hole.
To evaluate the efficacy and optimum timing for resurgery in case of persistent macular hole (MH).
To describe a full-thickness macular hole (MH) opening to macular intrachoroidal cavitation in a patient with pathologic myopia.
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.
