Vitreo-macular Interface Abnormalities in Diabetic and Non-Diabetic Patients Using Optical Coherence Tomography

Purpose: To study the frequency of vitreomacular interface abnormalities (VIAs) in diabetic and non-diabetic patients presenting in a tertiary care hospital. Study Design: Comparative cross-sectional study. Place and Duration of Study: Jinnah hospital, Lahore from May 2013 to June 2016. Methods: The frequency of vitreomacular interface abnormalities (VIAs) was assessed among 278 patients, who presented in outpatient department of our hospital. Patients were categorized into diabetic and non-diabetic groups on the basis of hemoglobinHbA1c. Patients with altered macular reflex on slit lamp examination underwent spectral domain (SD) optical coherence tomography (OCT) of macula to determine VIAs.
