Foveal Lucency with Different Gas Tamponades in Surgically Closed Macular Holes

Foveal Lucency with Different Gas Tamponades in Surgically Closed Macular Holes ABSTRACT The presence of foveal lucency (FL), a hyporeflective space underlying the fovea with continuity of the inner retinal layers after surgery – and/or disruption of outer retinal layers such as the ellipsoid layer or the external limiting membrane have been described in the course of the macular hole closure. Given the descriptive nature of...
