    SD-OCT Detects Elusive Epiretinal Membrane

    Researchers from Spain recommend practitioners perform spectral-domain optical coherence tomography (SD-OCT) before cataract surgery because fundus examination might not detect an epiretinal membrane. In their study, the membrane’s presence in the macular area with no foveal alterations was the only risk factor for pseudophakic cystoid macular edema (CME) and may implicate a previous subclinical damage or increased predisposition to both conditions. In a prospective cohort study, 112 patients underwent SD-OCT within one week pre-op and three months post-op. CME incidence in the cohort was 11.6% (13 eyes), all of which were diagnosed at one month, and seven eyes ...
