    Postoperative Metamorphopsia in Macula-Off Rhegmatogenous Retinal Detachment: Associations with Visual Function, Vision Related Quality of Life, and Optical Coherence Tomography Findings

    Purpose To evaluate postoperative metamorphopsia in macula-off rhegmatogenous retinal detachment (RRD) and its association with visual function, vision related quality of life, and optical coherence tomography (OCT) findings. Methods 45 patients with primary macula-off RRD were included. At 12 months postoperatively, data on metamorphopsia using sine amsler charts (SAC), best corrected visual acuity (BCVA), letter contrast sensitivity, color vision (saturated and desaturated color confusion indexes), critical print size, reading acuity, the 25-item National Eye Institute Visual Functioning Questionnaire (NEI-VFQ-25), and OCT, were obtained. Results Metamorphopsia was present in 39 patients (88.6%), with most of them (n = 35, 77.8 ...
