Time course of changes in metamorphopsia, visual acuity, and OCT parameters after successful epiretinal membrane surgery
Investigative Ophthalmology & Visual Science, 05/23/2012
Kinoshita T et al. – The preoperative best–corrected visual acuity (BCVA), MH score, and vertical lines (MV) score were prognostic factors for the corresponding postoperative BCVA, horizontal lines (MH) score, and MV score. These results suggest that surgery for epiretinal membrane should be considered before severe reduction in the BCVA or the degree of metamorphopsia. In addition, the preoperative MV score was a prognostic factor for postoperative BCVA. The MH score but not the MV score was correlated with the central foveal thickness preoperatively and postoperatively.
