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
