1. The predictive value of optical coherence tomography after grid laser photocoagulation for diffuse diabetic macular oedema

    Purpose: To assess the predictive value of optical coherence tomography (OCT) mapping of retinal thickness and intraretinal morphological changes after macular grid for diffuse diabetic macular oedema (DMO). Methods: We carried out a prospective, non-controlled, case series study, in which 28 consecutive eyes with previously untreated diffuse DMO underwent fundus photography and OCT at baseline and at 1, 3 and 6 months after treatment. Results: Macular photocoagulation was followed by a significant reduction in retinal thickness in the foveal centre (− 80 μm) and in the foveal subfield (− 65 μm) from baseline to 6 months (p 0.05). The relative decrease ...
