    INDIVIDUALIZED, SPECTRAL DOMAIN-OPTICAL COHERENCE TOMOGRAPHY–GUIDED FACEDOWN POSTURING AFTER MACULAR HOLE SURGERY: Minimizing Treatment Burden and Maximizing Outcome

    Purpose: To evaluate the individualized, optical coherence tomography-guided facedown posturing after macular hole (MH) surgery in minimizing the burden and maximizing outcome. Methods: A retrospective comparative study. One hundred and seven consecutive eyes with an MH (<500 μ m) received vitrectomy and gas tamponade. After surgery, optical coherence tomography examination was performed from 6 hours to postoperative Day 2. In Group A, with a pro re nata posturing protocol, the duration of facedown posturing was determined from the optical coherence tomography findings. Group A was subdivided as follows: Group A1, facedown posturing required postoperatively and Group A2, no posturing required. When ...
