    Clarifying the mechanism of idiopathic macular hole development in fellow eyes using spectral-domain optical coherence tomography

    Background: To clarify the mechanism of idiopathic macular hole development, we evaluated the vitreoretinal relationship in fellow eyes of those with a macular hole and normal eyes using spectral-domain optical coherence tomography. Thirty-one fellow eyes and 34 normal volunteer eyes without a posterior vitreous detachment (PVD) were included. Results: We classified six vitreomacular relationships: type 1, no PVD, five fellow eyes (16.1%) and nine control eyes (26.5%); type 2, shallow PVD with perifoveal vitreous attachment, seven fellow eyes (22.6%) and 19 control eyes (55.9%); type 3, shallow PVD with pinpoint foveal vitreous traction, seven fellow eyes ...
