- Appears in
- reddish crater, lattice degeneration, lattice lesion
- This lesion in a 51-year-old woman is also an example of lattice degeneration but shows only a uniform reddish crater with no other features. This lesion has remained exactly the same for 9 years but such red craters sometimes give rise to punched-out atrophic retinal holes which may lead to subclinical retinal detachment. This sequence of events will be shown in the next two slide pairs.
