1. Incidence of Postvitrectomy Macular Edema Using Optical Coherence Tomography

    Objective: To evaluate the incidence, effect on visual recovery, and predisposing risk factors of postvitrectomy macular edema (ME).Design: Prospective cohort study.Participants: One-hundred nine eyes undergoing nonemergent vitrectomy surgery.Methods: Eyes were evaluated for postoperative day 1 inflammation, 1-month retinal thickness using optical coherence tomography, and preoperative and 1-month postoperative best-corrected visual acuity (BCVA). Macular edema was defined as central subfield thickness ≥272 μm.Main Outcome Measures: Retinal thickness, inflammation, and BCVA.Results: Incidence of ME on optical coherence tomography was 47% (95% confidence interval [CI], 37%–56%). Mean 1-month visual acuity improved 3.3 lines (0.33 logarithm ...
