Abstract/OtherAbstract:
We describe nine patients (10 eyes) treated with pars plana vitrectomy for vitreous hemorrhage secondary to disciform macular degeneration. Nine of the eyes showed improved acuity at about 3 months and at the last follow-up visit (6 to 30 months). Two of the patients had ambulatory acuity (counting fingers or better) before surgery, compared with all the patients at the last follow-up visit. Vitrectomy may be beneficial in this subgroup of patients with macular degeneration.
