- Appears in
- retinal hole, retinal detachment, subretinal fluid, liquefied vitreous, lattice degeneration
- This is the same lesion as shown in the previous case. Two retinal holes are present, and you can look through the upper hole into the dark subretinal space. This is, therefore, a true subclinical retinal detachment but it has changed only slightly in the past 13 years. About 75% of such holes in lattice lesions show a tiny adjacent zone of subretinal fluid. After the hole forms from gradual progressive thing of the retina, a tiny amount of fluid from the pocket of liquified vitreous over the lesion passes through the hole to the subretinal space
