    CORRELATION BETWEEN PREOPERATIVE EN FACE OPTICAL COHERENCE TOMOGRAPHY OF PHOTORECEPTOR LAYER AND VISUAL PROGNOSIS AFTER MACULAR HOLE SURGERY

    Purpose: To investigate the correlation between preoperative en face spectral domain optical coherence tomography findings of the photoreceptor layer with restoration of foveal microstructure and visual acuity in repaired macular holes. Methods: Medical records of 106 patients with surgically closed macular holes were retrospectively reviewed. Preoperative OCT slabs of the external limiting membrane (ELM) and ellipsoid zone (EZ) were generated using embedded tools. All patients were classified into two groups according to the presence of preoperative retinal pigment epithelium protrusion seen as hyperreflective spots in EZ slab. Visual acuity, homogenous reflectivity, and glial proliferation in the ELM and EZ slabs ...
