    CHOROIDAL THICKNESS MEASURED WITH SWEPT SOURCE OPTICAL COHERENCE TOMOGRAPHY BEFORE AND AFTER VITRECTOMY WITH INTERNAL LIMITING MEMBRANE PEELING FOR IDIOPATHIC EPIRETINAL MEMBRANES

    Purpose: In eyes with epiretinal membranes (ERMs), retinal arteries become dilated and tortuous. This may correlate with the hemodynamics of the affected areas and possibly with choroidal thickness. The aim of this study was to estimate choroidal thickness before and after vitrectomy for idiopathic ERM in the operated eye and in the unaffected fellow eye. Methods: A prospective study of 21 patients with idiopathic ERMs. We obtained swept source optical coherence tomography images that simultaneously evaluated the vitreous, retina, and choroid. We performed choroidal thickness measurements before pars plana vitrectomy with ERM removal and internal limiting membrane peeling. We took ...
