1. Posturing Time after Macular Hole Surgery Modified by Optical Coherence Tomography Images: A Pilot Study

    Purpose: To see the early postoperative stage of macular hole (MH) surgery and to distinguish eyes needing prolonged posturing from those that do not use Fourier-domain optical coherence tomography (FD-OCT).Design: Interventional case series.Methods: Sixteen eyes of 15 patients with MH underwent the protocol at Kagoshima University Hospital.
