Optical coherence tomography (OCT) of a patient with macular telangiectasia treated with bilateral phacovitrectomy with internal limiting membrane (ILM) peeling. OCT images of the right eye preoperatively (A), 1 week after surgery (C), 1 month after surgery (E), 6 months after surgery (G), and 1 year after surgery (I). One week after surgery, the foveal cyst showed improvement and partial tissue filling of the foveal defect. However, no recovery of the inner segment/outer segment layer occurred. Postoperative 1 month, OCT findings showed a near complete absence of foveal tissue resembling a full-thickness macular hole. A thin strand of outer retinal tissue spanning the central defect. 6 months and 1 year after surgery, the loss of foveal tissue remained. OCT images of the left eye at the preoperative visit (B), 1 week after surgery (D), 1 month after surgery (F), 6 months after surgery (H), and 1 year after surgery (J). One week after surgery, the foveal cystic lesion disappeared and a mild hyperreflective tissue replaced all intraretinal layers at the fovea in the left eye. However, at postoperative 1 month, OCT findings of the left eye showed full thickness macular hole and an increased loss of foveal tissue the patient's at 6 months and 1 year follow-ups. OD = oculus dexter; OS = oculus sinister.
