- Appears in
- tractional retinal tear, posterior vitreous detachment, cystic retinal tuft
- This is the same eye that was described in slide pairs 15 and 16 and shows a large tractional symptomatic retinal tear at 12 o’clock. It was caused by a posterior vitreous detachment which placed sudden traction on a cystic retinal tuft. The whitish tuft is barely visible on the flap because it is not in focus. This tear was treated successfully with cryotherapy. The next slide pair is a postoperative view of the same lesion.
