How quickly does visual acuity recover after Macular Hole surgery?
What is it about?
We examined the rate of acuity recovery in a group of macular hole patients. We followed these participants for at least 6 months and measured changes in their vision using different acuity measures. The results indicted that most of the recovery occurs within the first 3-6 months.
Why is it important?
This information can be used to counsel patients that have to decide whether to undergo this treatment, and can give them a better understanding of the recovery process and the expectations they can have in terms of their recovery process.
