- This 50-year-old man was treated with cryotherapy for two tiny non tractional round holes which had produced a small subclinical retinal detachment at 7:00 o’clock in this eye. Two years later he was seen with this large horseshoe tractional tear just anterior to the treated area and we must assume that it was a complication of that treatment.
