    Spectral domain optical coherence tomography-guided versus 1-week facedown-posturing after macular hole surgery

    Objective To compare idiopathic full-thickness macular hole (FTMH) closure rates and postoperative best-corrected visual acuity (BCVA) between spectral domain optical coherence tomography (SD-OCT)–guided facedown posturing and conventional 1-week facedown posturing after macular hole surgery. Design A retrospective comparative study. Participants Thirty-one consecutive eyes that underwent surgery for FTMH between July 2013 and September 2014 were divided into 2 groups. Methods In the SD-OCT-guided group, SD-OCT was performed on the first day after surgery. If the macular hole was closed, the patient could assume any position but supine. If the hole was not closed on postoperative day 1, SD-OCT was ...
