    Dear Editor,

    We thank Huisingh and McGwin, Jr for their comments on our study. We basically agree with their remark regarding the study design. We hypothesized that high myopia could affect surgical outcomes and considered it as a risk factor. Highly myopic eyes were selected based on axial length and were matched for potential confounding factors (i.e., duration of symptoms and preoperative visual acuity) with...

The participants were followed up prospectively to compare anatomical and functional outcomes following epiretinal membrane (ERM) surg...
