    Swept-Source optical coherence tomography correlations between retina and choroid before and after vitrectomy for epiretinal membranes

    Purpose To describe retinal and choroidal morphology before and after surgery for epiretinal membranes (ERM) in Swept Source OCT (SS-OCT). Additionally, to evaluate factors responsible for visibility of the suprachoroidal layer (SCL) and suprachoroidal space (SCS). Design Prospective consecutive case series. Material and Methods 29 eyes of 29 patients with symptomatic, idiopathic ERM were included. Pars plana vitrectomy with ERM removal and ILM peeling was performed. We examined patients with SS-OCT twice preoperatively (9-12 months and one week before surgery), then postoperatively at 1 week, 6 and 12 months. Results Twelve months after surgery visual acuity improved to 20/50 ...
