    Photoreceptor Layer Assessed in Tissue Layer Image Using Spectral-Domain Optical Coherence Tomography After Surgical Closure of Macular Hole
    Purpose: To investigate changes in the photoreceptor layer in tissue layer images using spectral-domain optical coherence tomography after macular hole surgery. Methods: Visual acuity and spectral-domain optical coherence tomography scans were obtained in 24 eyes with surgically closed macular holes prospectively at 1, 2, 4, and 6 months after surgery. The scanned data were processed to generate tissue layer images of the photoreceptor layer, namely, photoreceptor layer map. Hyporeflective area and reflectivity at the fovea were analyzed to find a correlation with visual acuity. Results: Mean visual acuity improved from 48.1 letters preoperatively to 62.5 letters at 1 ...
