Case 4-14, Epiretinal Membrane

Clinical Summary

A 71-year-old woman had recently undergone cataract surgery in her right eye; however, her visual acuity in this eye had not improved beyond 20/100. Slit4amp examination (A) showed an epiretinal membrane in the macular region and a posterior vitreous detachment.

Optical Coherence Tomography

An OCT scan through fixation (B) demonstrated a region of focal retinal thickening in the central macula due to either traction or macular edema. The foveal depression was absent. An epiretinal membrane was visible as a moderately reflective, thin band adherent to the retinal surface.
