    This retrospective analysis of 38 patients (62 eyes) with diabetic macular edema (DME) who underwent SD OCT imaging found a significant correlation between percentage disruption of the inner segment/outer segment junction and visual acuity (P = 0.0312). The authors also observed a strong trend suggesting a relationship between macular volume and visual acuity (P=0.07). 

    The authors conclude that assessing the status of the inner segment/outer segment junction on SD OCT helps clinicians more accurately predict the visual outcome of patients with DME, and future studies will be needed to identify treatments that may help to prevent photoreceptor damage in DME.
