    This is the same case as the previous photograph. With scleral indentation slightly more posterior, the flap is seen to be associated with a large retinal tear. This is a tractional tear and it is possible that in this case the cryotherapy itself may have increased the vitreoretinal traction at this site and in this way led to this new tear. The age of the tear is unknown because it was asymptomatic, and even though the eye is aphakic the tear has not caused a clinical retinal detachment.
