2018-37: Cataract surgery in eyes with an idiopathic macular epiretinal membrane: the effect on the epiretinal membrane and the surgical outcome

Cataract
Outcome research
Investigator Initiated Research
Inclusion open since 16-8-2019

There is, as yet, no consensus among cataract surgeons and vitreoretinal surgeons with respect to the optimal treatment strategy for patients with cataract and an epiretinal membrane (ERM). For ERM-related symptoms, pars plana vitrectomy (PPV) is usually combined with cataract extraction but when cataract surgery is indicated for these patients, the option of phacovitrectomy, although perhaps equally beneficial for some of them, is less often taken into consideration. The objective of this study is to quantify progression of macular ERM, and the degree of correlation with phaco-energy, after phacoemulsification.
