Surgical Outcomes in Macular Pucker Patients

Dr. Reilly  published a paper in the journal Retina examining the outcomes of vitrectomy surgery in patients with macular pucker and good visual acuity.  They specifically examined the visual outcomes in patients with symptomatic macular pucker with relatively good pre-operative visual acuity ( better than 20/50 ).  At one year follow up they showed a significant improvement in visual acuity in patients undergoing surgery.  This study confirmed previous study observations that progression of cataract is common after vitrectomy.  Cataracts are treatable with outpatient surgery.  The journal Retina is a leading, peer-reviewed journal in ophthalmology and a source for innovative research in the field of vitreo-retinal surgery world-wide.
