A multicenter international collaborative study.
189 cases of optic pit maculopathy were reported by 35 vitreoretinal specialists from 21 countries spanning 4 continents. The mean age of patients at diagnosis was 33.51 years. At diagnosis, 177 were phakic, 11 were pseudophakic and 1 data was not available. The initial treatment included external laser in 32 yes and vitrectomy in 109 eyes. BCVA was 0.62 ± 0.08 logMar preoperatively, and improved to 0.56 ± 0.08 after 3-8 months, 0.61 ± 0.11 after 9-17 months, 0.55 ± 0.12 after 18-29 months. 31 eyes out of 189 received a second treatment.
