- Appears in
- scleral indentation, posterior vitreous detachment, retinal hemorrhage, vitreoretinal attachment
- This is the same lesion seen in the previous slide pair. With the scleral indentation performed more posteriorly, a small hemorrhage can be seen on the white tuft. This is proof of the vitreal retinal attachment at this spot. Posterior vitreous detachment can produce a retinal tear at the site of a cystic retinal tuft, but in this case has caused only a small hemorrhage.
