- This 52-year-old woman suffered a sudden posterior vitreous detachment which caused a large horseshoe tear at 12:00 o’clock in this eye. It also produced another change at 8:45 in this left eye shown in this photograph. Note the small hemorrhage just to the left of the vessel. Immediately to the left of the hemorrhage and lying alongside of the vessel is a yellowish lesion which actually represents a cystic retinal tuft. You will see it better in the next slide pair.
