The author made a study on 130 cases over 3 years. The results confirmed those presented last year by Didier Ducournau. The removal of the ILM demonstrates a long-term improvement of visual acuity and a nearly total disappearance of neovascular glaucoma. The importance of the improvement is higher than the one obtained with other treatments. The study’s results suggest that the long-term visual acuity recovery is related to the reduction or stabilization of the associated macular edema.
