Epiretinaf Macular Membranes

Case 4-12. Epiretinal Membrane

Clinical Summary

An epimacular membrane in the right eye of a 71-year-old man was examined (A). His visual acuity in this eye was 20/200.

Optical Coherence Tomography

A vertical OCT tomogram (B; white line on A) was acquired directly through the patient s fixation. The fovea was almost unidentifiable in the middle of the scan (arrows) due to traction by the epiretinal membrane, which appeared as a red, reflective band attached to the inner retina. Small cysts were visualized throughout the macula in the intermediate layers of the retina. A horizontal OCT image (C; black line on A) obtained superior to the fovea showed apparent contraction of the membrane, and elevation of the nasal retina.
