Main outcome measurement: Microperimetry, Spectral Domain Optical Coherence Tomography (SD-OCT).

Condition Intervention
Epiretinal Membrane
Procedure: Epiretinal Membrane Surgical treatment

Study Type: Interventional
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

Further study details as provided by Nicot Frederic, Centre Hospitalier Universitaire Dijon:

Primary Outcome Measures:
  • 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.
