Brief Summary:
Surgical outcome of vitrectomy for myopic traction maculopathy in highly myopic eyes was evaluated in each stage. Efficacy of internal limiting membrane was also evaluated whether it may improve visual outcome.

Condition or disease Intervention/treatment Phase
Maculopathy High Myopia Surgery Procedure: vitrectomy Not Applicable

Detailed Description:
Surgical outcome of vitrectomy for myopic traction maculopathy in highly myopic eyes was evaluated in each stage of macular retinischisis, foveal detachment, or macular hole. Efficacy of internal limiting membrane was also evaluated whether it may improve visual outcome.
