I read with great interest the article “Relationship between variations in posterior vitreous detachment and visual prognosis in idiopathic epiretinal membranes” by Ota et al.1 The authors have compared visual prognosis of epiretinal membrane (ERM) patients according to type of vitreous detachment. Partial posterior vitreous detachment (P-PVD) was found to be related with poor visual acuity and prognosis. I appreciate the authors for this well-organized study.
