    This is a developmental abnormality in a 59-year-old man. It is an enclosed ora bay on the temporal side, an isolated island of normal pars plana epithelium. It is important not to confuse this entity with a retinal break. It has smooth, sloping borders not a sharp, thin, visible retinal edge as a retinal break would have. The border looks exactly like that of the ora serrata, and the grayish pigmented base has the same appearance as the normal pars plana.
