Microperimetry and Optical Coherence Tomography (OCT) in Idiopathic Epiretinal Membrane
Purpose: To evaluate macular sensitivity and its correlation with visual acuity and Spectral Domain Optical Coherence Tomography (SD-OCT) in eyes with idiopathic epiretinal membrane (ERM).
Design: Cross sectional case-control series.
Setting: Dijon University Hospital. Patients: Forty nine patients (49 eyes) with idiopathic ERM and twenty-seven healthy patients (27 eyes) as a control group.
Main outcome measurement: Microperimetry, Spectral Domain Optical Coherence Tomography (SD-OCT).
|Study Design:||Allocation: Non-Randomized
Intervention Model: Single Group Assignment
Masking: Open Label
Primary Purpose: Basic Science
|Official Title:||Retinal Sensitivity and Optical Coherence Tomography Findings in Eyes With Idiopathic Epiretinal Membrane|
- Macular sensitivity [ Time Frame: 12 months ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]The objective of this study was to assess macular function by measuring its sensitivity using microperimetry in patients with idiopathic ERM every three months up to one year. We compared the results of macular sensitivity to the best-corrected visual acuity (BCVA) and the OCT data to better understand the structure-function relationship.
