67-year-old woman has a macular pucker in the left eye. She had radiation for a melanoma in that eye in 2006. She had cataract surgery February of 2009 and a posterior sub-Tenon Kenalog injection in April. Her vision in the left eye is hazy and she has trouble seeing out of it. VISUAL ACUITY: OS 20/70. IOP: 11. The posterior chamber intraocular lens is in good position. EXTENDED OPHTHALMOSCOPY: OS: Vertical C/D ratio is 0.3. There are 2+ vitreous cells. There is a 3+ epiretinal membrane. There is radiation and retinopathy nasal to the optic nerve and there is a melanoma, which has regressed superonasally. OCT SCAN: The OCT scan shows an average central foveal thickness of 347 microns, which is stable. Photos confirm clinical findings. FLUORESCEIN ANGIOGRAPHY: Fluorescein angiography shows some irregularities where the macular pucker is and the radiation retinopathy is nasally away from the optic nerve with the capillary closure over the tumor. IMPRESSION: 1. STATUS POST RADIATION FOR MELANOMA – LEFT EYE 2. MACULAR PUCKER – LEFT EYE DISCUSSION: I explained to the patient with 20/70 vision with the macular pucker, she is a reasonable candidate for macular pucker surgery. She would like to try that if it would improve her vision. I told her there is an 80 percent chance of her vision improving about half way to normal with the therapy. (Vision improved to 20/40 6 months after vitrectomy for pucker)
