Purpose : To quantify the degree of aniseikonia in patients undergoing vitrectomy for macular hole (MH), and to investigate the relationship between aniseikonia and foveal microstructures with spectral-domain optical coherence tomography (SD-OCT).

Methods : This study included 50 eyes of 50 patients with idiopathic MH. We evaluated aniseikonia with the New Aniseikonia Test and retinal microstructure with SD-OCT before and 3 and 6 months after surgery. Based on the obtained OCT images, we quantified the following parameters using an image-processing program: hole height, minimum diameter, and base diameter of MH.

Results : Before surgery, 25 of 50 patients (50%) had micropsia, 6 patients (12%) had macropsia, and 19 patients (38%) had no aniseikonia. Mean preoperative aniseikonia was 3.0% [range -14% ~ +5%]. Postoperative aniseikonia at 3 months and 6 months was 1.3% and 1.6%, respectively, which significantly improved from the preoperative level. Preoperative aniseikonia was not associated with postoperative aniseikonia (p = 0.22). Preoperative and postoperative aniseikonia was significantly related to the base diameter of MH (p<0.05 and p<0.05, respectively).

Conclusions : Half of the patients with MH exhibited micropsia, which improved by surgery. The amount of aniseikonia was associated with the base diameter of MH.
