07 May Postoperative Outcomes of Idiopathic Epiretinal Membrane Associated With Foveoschisis
On April 21, 2021, Dr. Sebag, Dr. Gui of the VMR Institute for Vitreous Macula Retina and Dr. Hubschman of the Stein Eye Institute at UCLA published a letter to the editor in the British Journal of Ophthalmology entitled “Re: Lam et al.: Postoperative outcomes of idiopathic epiretinal membrane associated with foveoschisis” [link: https://bjo.bmj.com/content/early/2021/02/16/bjophthalmol-2020-317982.responses#re-lam-et-al-postoperative-outcomes-of-idiopathic-epiretinal-membrane-associated-with-foveoschisis].
The purpose of the letter is to allow the reader to consider the differences (and possibly confounding effects) of cystoid macular edema (CME) vs. foveoschisis.
The authors feel that this is important to the reader because each entity is treated in disparate ways and the outcomes will also differ. As we move into an era of multimodal imaging and personalized medicine, we will need to be precise in the way we diagnose disorders and offer targeted treatments.
