Abstract

Background To evaluate macular changes in fellow eyes of one eye does not increase significantly the risk of developing patients diagnosed with lamellar macular hole (LMH) using the same condition in the fellow eye after 4 years. Bilateral spectral-domain optical coherence tomography (SD-OCT) condition is uncommon, and an ERM is often detected in the and blue fundus autofluorescence (B-FAF). fellow eye. LHEPs were not observed in fellow eyes with Methods Fellow eyes of patients diagnosed with a LMH were foveal integrity, and all LHEPs observed (in main and fellow retrospectively evaluated on OCT. Best-corrected visual acu- eyes) were always associated with LMHs; this supports the ity (BCVA) and central foveal thickness (CFT) were recorded. hypothesis that LHEP is a consequence and not a causative Corresponding B-FAF images, vitreo-macular relations, and factor for LMHs. The occurrence of a LMH in one fellow eye type of epiretinal membranes (ERMs) were also examined. after 3 years follow-up may suggest that a higher incidence of Results Thirty-five patients were included. At baseline, six bilateral disease could develop in a longer time span. fellow eyes (17%) showed a normal foveal profile, 26 (74%) had a tractional ERM, and three cases (9%) revealed a bilateral
