Several changes in vitreoretinal (VR) practice have questioned the traditional practice of surgery only in more advanced cases with reduced vision, and earlier surgery has been advocated. In addition, a common dilemma in patients with no or minimal symptoms, particularly in the presence of advanced ERMs, is the risk of progression. In this Concise Practice Point, we critically appraise published literature to produce evidence-based recommendations on criteria for referral, decision to operate, follow up and surgical technique used by vitreoretinal surgeons.
