    Tomographic Features of Macula after Successful Macular Hole Surgery

    Purpose. To determine the retinal features associated with a dissociated optic nerve fiber layer (DONFL) appearance after successful macular hole surgery with internal limiting membrane (ILM) peeling. Methods. Forty-seven eyes of 47 patients that underwent pars plana vitrectomy with ILM peeling were examined by spectral-domain optical coherence tomography (SD-OCT). Results. A DONFL appearance was found in 31 (66.0%) eyes on color fundus photography. The postoperative best-corrected visual acuity and its improvements were not significantly different between eyes with and without this appearance. The SD-OCT images showed small inner retinal defects corresponding to each arcuate stria in all eyes with ...
