A Case of Spontaneous Resolution of Vitreomacular Traction Syndrome
Juhong Park, Min Sagong, Woohyok Chang
Abstract
Purpose
We report spontaneous resolution of vitreomacular traction syndrome without surgical intervention. Methods: A 74-year-old woman presented with a 8-month history of visual disturbance in her right eye. Optical coherence tomography showed attachment of the posterior hyaloids to the macula and significant macular elevation. Results: Twelve months after presentation, visual acuity was improved. OCT revealed complete posterior vitreous detachment and decreased foveal thickness. Conclusions: As spontaneous resolution may occur in some eyes with VMT, a period of observation with sequential OCT evaluation to assess the vitreous anatomy may be considered prior to surgical intervention.
