A comparison of several methods of macular hole measurement using optical coherence tomography, and their value in predicting anatomical and visual outcomes
British Journal of Ophthalmology, 06/06/2012
Wakely L et al. – Base diameter, macular hole inner opening and minimum linear diameter can each be used to predict anatomical and/or functional success in macular hole surgery. Preoperative base diameter is the most useful variable in this regard, as it holds the strongest association with anatomical and visual outcome and is easily measured on a optical coherence tomography scan.
