    asymptomatic, posterior scleral indentation, retinal hole, round hole, full thickness retinal hole, atrophy
    This is the same lesion as seen in the previous slide pair. Here the scleral indentation is carried more posterior revealing a tiny, round, full thickness retinal hole. This is not a tear produced by traction even though vitreous is always attached to these flaps. You will note that the hole is round and is separated by a slight distance from the flap itself. It is probably the result of long continued atrophy and devitalization of the retina. A posterior vitreous was not detached. This lesion has not changed its appearance for more than a year of observation, but the age of the hole is actually unknown.
