- Appears in
- scleral buckle, aphakic eye, tractional retinal tear, retinal detachment
- This 75-year-old woman had a scleral buckling operation on this aphakic eye two months previously. Two months following surgery she again had new symptoms of blurred vision and was found to have a redetachment caused by this small tractional retinal tear which may have been missed at the time of her original operation.
