    A newly developed method to treat optic pit, recently described by our group, is presented in different cases with intraoperative OCT. The concept involves carefully “stuffing” the optic pit with internal limiting membrane in order to prevent translaminar pressure differences and/or block fluid migration. Intraoperative OCT, postoperative swept source OCT and swept source OCT angiography images will illustrate long-term follow-up. The healing process takes longer in eyes with preoperative outer lamellar macular holes when compared to eyes with subretinal fluid. This technique results in good long-term anatomic and functional results. Preliminary data were published (Nawrocki J, et al. Retina (Philadelphia, Pa.) 2016 Dec;36(12):2430-2432).
