Analysis of peripapillary choroidal thickness in primary open angle glaucoma.
To assess the effect of Silicone Oil (SO) tamponade on Best-Corrected Visual Acuity (BCVA) when used in macula-on Retinal Detachments (RD). Methods: Retrospective, non-randomised interventional case series of consecutive patients with macula-on RD where SO was successfully used to reattach the retina. The following variables were analysed: hospital site, gender, age, axial length, pre-operative BCVA, presence of vitreous haemorrhage, giant retinal tear, or proliferative vitreoretinopathy, lens status during SO tamponade, duration of SO tamponade, use of perfluorcarbon liquid, an encircling band and the illumination source during Removal of SO (ROSO). The main outcome measure was BCVA at 3 months after ROSOAuthor(s): Seyed Mehdi Tabatabaei*
