Male or female subjects aged over 40 years with vitreomacular adhesion
- What is the overall prevalence of Vitreomacular adhesion in the population 40 years and older? [ Time Frame: Two years ]Prevalence will be measured using Spectral Domain Optical Coherence Tomography. Tomography scans will be evaluated for the presence or absence of vitreomacular adhesion.
- Is there is a significant correlation between VMA and various maculopathies including diabetic macular edema, retinal vascular occlusion, and age-related macular degeneration? [ Time Frame: 2 years ]Spectral domain optical coherence tomography scans will be used to evaluate for the presence of isolated or concomitant vitreomacular adhesion.
- Is VMA more common in males or females? [ Time Frame: 2 years ]The prevalence of VMA in both genders will be identified using Spectral Domain Optical Coherence Tomography and evaluated for statistical significance.
