Arm Intervention/treatment
Experimental: Epiretinal Membrane
The investigators prospectively included 49 eyes of 49 patients with idiopathic ERM for which surgical treatment had been planned.
Procedure: Epiretinal Membrane Surgical treatment
epiretinal membrane peeling
No Intervention: Control
Subjects with normal visual acuity and OCT profile

Primary Outcome Measures :
  1. Macular sensitivity [ Time Frame: 12 months ]
    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.
