    IDIOPATHIC AND SECONDARY EPIRETINAL MEMBRANES: Do They Differ in Terms of Morphology? An Optical Coherence Tomography–Based Study
    Purpose: The purpose of this study was to define the morphologic differences in idiopathic and secondary epiretinal membranes (ERMs) using a time domain optical coherence tomography. Methods: The medical records and optical coherence tomography images of 293 eyes of 236 consecutive patients diagnosed to have ERM were evaluated retrospectively. Demographic features, best-corrected visual acuities, central macular thickness, membrane attachment patterns, macular changes, and the presence of posterior retinal detachment at the time of diagnosis were compared between the groups (idiopathic group, n = 125 eyes; secondary group, n = 168 eyes). Results: The mean age was higher among idiopathic ERMs (67 ± 9 ...
