Peeling of Epiretinal Membranes in PVR

DOI: 10.3207/0805173329

Starfolds in PVR show considerable retinal traction, but the causing epiretinal membrane is rarely clearly to discern from the underlying retinal tissue. One must then grab the navel of the fold and while pulling tangentially learn by the difference in elasticity what is membrane and what is retina. The primary goal is to release traction. An incidental retinal hole is a minor disadvantage over leaving behind epiretinal membranes. However all retinal holes need to be lasered in the end.
