Abstract

Purpose To investigate the Ganglion Cell Complex (GCC) thickness change and visual recovery correlation after surgery for an idiopathic epiretinal membrane (ERM). Methods In this prospective, observational, case control study 30 eyes underwent vitrectomy for idiopathic ERM. We analysed best-corrected visual acuity (BCVA), mean macular thickness and mean GCC thickness one day before surgery, seven days and six months after surgery. Internal segment/ outer segment junction, external limiting membrane, cone outer segment tips defects and intraretinalfluid were also investigated throughout the follow-up. Results Baseline GCC thickness was higher in patients with ERM (130±13 μm) compared with healthy eyes (94±5 μm; p
