- This is a rather poor photograph taken in 1969 but is important for comparison with the next slide pair. It shows a cystic retinal tuft in a 49-year-old woman and was taken without scleral indentation. The two pigment spots just inferior to the tuft represent a secondary degenerative change in the pigment epithelium.
