Abstract

Evaluation of Incomplete Posterior Vitreous Detachment in Healthy Eyes by Optical Coherence Tomography

Universitäts-Augenklinik Graz/A

Purpose: Purpose of this study was to evaluate the incidence of incomplete posterior vitreous detachment in healthy eyes by using OCT III (Optical Coherence Tomography).
Method: 70 healthy eyes of patients between 10 and 70 years of age were included. Incomplete posterior vitreous detachment at the optic disc and/or fovea was detected by OCT. Results were analysed and an association to the age of patients was evaluated.
Results: Eight out of 70 eyes showed an incomplete posterior vitreous detachment with attachment at the optic disc or fovea. The highest incidence was seen in the third and sixth decade of life.
Conclusions: The diagnosis of an incomplete posterior vitreous detachment with attachment at the optic disc and fovea is relevant for the diagnosis and prognosis of macular holes and epiretinal membranes. Our study revealed a higher incidence of incomplete posterior vitreous detachment in patients in the third and at the sixth decade of life. Whether these patients tend to develop macular holes or epiretinal membranes is unknown.
