Abstract

Optical coherence tomography (OCT) is a valuable tool for assessment of the vitreoretinal interface. This article reviews the normal process of age-related posterior vitreous detachment as viewed by OCT. Abnormalities of the vitreoretinal interface as imaged by OCT are described including vitreomacular traction syndrome, cystoid macular edema/ diabetic macular edema, epiretinal membranes, full thickness macular holes, lamellar holes, pseudoholes, microholes, and schisis from myopia or optic pits/colobomas. This tool has given us new insights into the pathogenesis of these retinal abnormalities.
