    Continuous changes in macular morphology after macular hole closure visualized with spectral optical coherence tomography
    Background To report on changes in retinal morphology during the 12 months after macular hole surgery. Methods Seventy one eyes of 66 patients after pars plana vitrectomy with ILM peeling and air tamponade were evaluated with spectral OCT for 12 months and additionally before surgery. Macular hole size was measured. On consecutive visits, the size of photoreceptor layer defects and elevation of the outer retinal layers were measured. Additionally, changes in foveal contour, nerve fibre layer defects, and retinal pigment epithelium defects were evaluated. Results Photoreceptor defects were observed in 66 eyes (93%) 1 week after surgery, and in only ...
