    Complications of intravitreal ocriplasmin for vitreomacular traction and macular hole: a prospective spectral-domain optical coherence tomography study

    Objective : The purpose of this study was to evaluate the safety of intravitreal ocriplasmin prospectively, reporting potential complications in patients with vitreomacular traction (VMT) alone or associated with macular hole (MH). Materials and methods : Participants in this prospective, multicenter study, were 24 patients with VMT (17 with VMT alone and seven with MH combined with VMT). All patients were treated with a single ocriplasmin injection and followed-up prospectively at baseline, day 7, 28 and the last examination of the follow-up for each patient (mean ± SD: 64.2 ± 24.4 d, range: 40–145 d). Best-corrected visual acuity (BCVA) was assessed ...
