  • Large Retinal Fold

    Sep 22 2020 by Sophia El Hamichi, MD

    A 69-year-old female, with a history of choroidal melanoma in her left eye with exudative detachment, underwent tumor laser ablation. She then developed a complex combined tractional and rhegmatogenous retinal detachment with a giant retinal tear. The patient underwent surgical repair of her retinal detachment with pars plana vitrectomy and silicone oil. In the post-op, the patient developed large retinal folds masking the optic nerve depicted in the fundus photograph.
