- Appears in
- retinoschisis, white spots in inner layer
- These whitish spots in the inner layer are an uncommon finding in retinoschisis. When this highly elevated lesion was first discovered in this 45- year-old woman, it extended to within 25 degrees of the macula. Eleven years later it was exactly the same; although, the eye had received no treatment. This illustrates the predominant characteristic of this disease namely that it is usually non progressive.
