- Appears in
- prophylactic cyrotherapy, vitreoretinal traction, free operculum, scleral indentation, cystic retinal tuft, retinal flap, vitreous fibrils
- This is the appearance of the previous lesion three weeks following prophylactic cryotherapy. Continuing vitreal retinal traction has a now torn the flap completely free from the retina. The whitish cystic retinal tuft can be discerned on the upper part of the free operculum. Along the lower half of the operculum superimposed over the dark shadow of the scleral indentation one may observe numerous, delicate, vitreous fibrils actually attaching to the operculum.
