- This 57-year-old man has three large breaks in the outer layer of his retinoschisis. Note the interesting bridges separating the breaks and also note that the intact inner layer is only slightly elevated above the outer layer. This eye has not been treated and has remained essentially the same for eight years. Please note the yellow dots on the surface of the inner layer and the blood vessels running through this layer.
