    Description
    This is another example of a symptomatic retinal tear which occurred at the site of a cystic retinal tuft two days prior to the photograph when an acute posterior vitreous detachment occurred in this 64-year-old woman. Note the horizontal line of vitreous blood along the lower edge of the flap which demarcates the vitreous attachment to the flap.
