To report long-term outcomes in patients with vitreomacular traction injected with intravitreal ocriplasmin.
Interventional case series.
A 64-year-old woman and a 46-year-old woman.
In Case 1, a 64-year-old woman with focal vitreomacular traction with impending macular hole presented with a visual acuity of 20/80 +1 and was injected with ocriplasmin 11 days later. Visual acuity continued to improve and stabilized through 60 weeks of follow-up with a final visual acuity of 20/50. Vitreomacular traction release was confirmed by optical coherence tomography 6 weeks after injection.
In Case 2, a 46-year-old woman with focal vitreomacular traction presented with a visual acuity of 20/60 and received ocriplasmin treatment the same day. Vitreomacular traction release was confirmed by optical coherence tomography 2 days later. After subsequent worsening of visual acuity, pneumatic retinopexy and pars plana vitrectomy were performed. Visual acuity continued to improve and stabilize throughout the 52-week follow-up with a final visual acuity of 20/25.
We present here two patients with focal vitreomacular traction treated with ocriplasmin and followed up long-term for up to one year. In both cases, visual acuity improved compared with baseline and stabilized after ocriplasmin treatment. These cases add to the growing literature demonstrating resolution of symptoms after ocriplasmin treatment over longer follow-up periods.
