Purpose: evaluation of the effectiveness of treatment for vitreomacular traction below 500 urn in length uncomplicated by epiretinal fibrosis and macular holes. Material and Methods. Enzymatic vitreolysis was used to treat 23 patients (23 eyes) with uncomplicated vitreomacular traction up to 500 urn in length. Results. Elimination of vitreomacular traction was achieved in 17 cases (74%). The goal of intervention was not achieved in 5 cases (21 %), in 1 case (5%) a macular hole was formed. Conclusion. The results have shown that enzymatic vitreolysis can be a method of choice for treatment of vitreomacular traction up to 500 urn uncomplicated by epiretinal fibrosis and macular holes.
