    The natural history of lamellar macular holes: a spectral domain optical coherence tomography study

    BACKGROUND: To study the evolution of lamellar macular holes (LMHs) using spectral domain-optical coherence tomography (SD-OCT). METHODS: Thirty-four consecutive patients diagnosed with a LMH were followed prospectively at Sacco University Hospital from October 2008 to January 2011. Inclusion criteria were a foveal defect on SD-OCT with residual foveal tissue above the retinal pigment epithelium and corresponding hyperautofluorescence on fundus autofluorescence imaging. Epiretinal membranes (ERMs) were categorized by SD-OCT at baseline as two different types: normal and thicker than normal. Best corrected visual acuity (BCVA) and SD-OCT findings were collected and compared at baseline and every 6 months thereafter. Active eye ...
