    Membrane Peeling Under Silicone Oil

    By Steve Charles, MD

    In cases of epiretinal membrane (ERM) and proliferative vitreoretinopathy (PVR), Dr. Steve Charles leaves in place any pre-existing silicone oil. The technique saves time, and because the membrane is easy to see under the silicone interface, no staining is required. End-grasping forceps are used and visualization is aided by a flat contact lens.
