    Objective: Detecting prognostic factors of pars plana vitrectomy in treatment of lamellar macular holes using Spectral Domain Optical Coherence Tomography (SD-OCT). Methods: Prospective intervention study recruiting 20 eyes of 20 patients with lamellar macular hole. Patients underwent 23 G Pars plana vitrectomy with Epi-Retinal Membrane (ERM) and Internal Limiting Membrane (ILM) peeling with inverted flap on the surface with sulphur hexafluoride gas tamponade. Patients were evaluated pre-operatively and at one, three and six months post-operatively for Best Corrected Visual Acuity (BCVA, logMAR), OCT evaluation of ellipsoid zone, Central Macular Thickness (CMT) and foveal configuration. Results: Visual acuity improved in 14 eyes at a mean of 6 months after vitrectomy. Subgroup analysis showed that statistically sig.. View More»
